Mother’s Day – Sun – 22-05-08

Have you ever wanted something so badly, you poured out prayers and tears asking God for it? I’ve had a few times like that. I received some of the answers I sought. For others, not yet. Today, we look at a woman who prayed with tears to overcome infertility. 1 Samuel 1:10-11 says, ‘In bitterness of soul Hannah wept much and prayed to the LORD. And she made a vow, saying, “O LORD Almighty , if you will only look upon your servant’s misery and remember me, and not forget your servant but give her a son, then I will give him to the LORD for all the days of his life, and no razor will ever be used on his head.”’ (NIV)

God answered Hannah’s prayer! She bore a son named Samuel and dedicated him to the Lord. That was no easy thing. When Samuel was a few years old, she left him miles from home to be raised by the priests at the tabernacle. Once a year she would journey there to worship and see her son. Each year, she brought him clothes she had made. Samuel eventually became a leader in Israel.

This week, the podcast will look at mothers from the bible. Hannah was a remarkable mother. She reminds us that dedicated mothers make sacrifices so their children will follow God. Take a moment to remember the sacrifices your mother made for you.
