1 Samuel 2:1-10
And Hannah prayed and said,
“My heart exults in the Lord;
my horn is exalted in the Lord.
My mouth derides my enemies,
because I rejoice in your salvation.
“There is none holy like the Lord:
for there is none besides you;
there is no rock like our God.
Talk no more so very proudly,
let not arrogance come from your mouth;
for the Lord is a God of knowledge,
and by him actions are weighed.
The bows of the mighty are broken,
but the feeble bind on strength.
Those who were full have hired themselves out for bread,
but those who were hungry have ceased to hunger.
The barren has borne seven,
but she who has many children is forlorn.
The Lord kills and brings to life;
he brings down to Sheol and raises up.
The Lord makes poor and makes rich;
he brings low and he exalts.
He raises up the poor from the dust;
he lifts the needy from the ash heap
to make them sit with princes
and inherit a seat of honor.
For the pillars of the earth are the Lord's,
and on them he has set the world.
“He will guard the feet of his faithful ones,
but the wicked shall be cut off in darkness,
for not by might shall a man prevail.
The adversaries of the Lord shall be broken to pieces;
against them he will thunder in heaven.
The Lord will judge the ends of the earth;
he will give strength to his king
and exalt the horn of his anointed.”
Hannah and the Good News are still there in the Holy Spirit, because Jesus is LORD.
In Jesus, Hannah cried out, was heard and had new life. Life abundant. Her story is not just a story of long ago. Her story is today. For us to know the exact nature of Father God..
Her son, Samuel had many times in life with our Father.

You are the Lord, we trust those we love to You in Your mercy and goodness. Praying their hearts know Your goodness and Love to comfort and help their days. That You will remain with us and we celebrate Your Glory.
You will be with us and never forsake us. In Jesus we will be strong and courageous, we will not turn to the right nor the left, we will not be frightened or dismayed and will keep reading the Word of God, Your Good News in Jesus Christ the Lord.
We ask You to cover us in the name of Jesus and Your mercy when we sin and fall in error. We ask You anoint the people who would follow Jesus to know His Word and live and move and have their being in Jesus and His Promises and Blessings. Help our attitudes, words and opinions be witness to You, Jesus.
We do not turn aside from following the Lord, but serve the Lord with all our heart. For the Lord will not forsake his people, for his great name's sake, because it has pleased the Lord to make you a people for himself. We will not cease to pray for you, and give us hearts turned to You and You will instruct us in the good and the right way. We will Love the Lord and serve him faithfully with all our heart. For consider what great things You, Father God, has done for us.
