Praying through 1 Samuel 1:10

Heavenly Father, thank You for Hannah and the lovely lessons we can learn from the painful episode she underwent in her life – so that her trust in You could be ignited and her faith in God could be strengthened. Teach me to pray aright and help me to hand over every circumstance in life to You, knowing that Your way is best, and Your will is perfect. Increase my faith I pray, and should I ever become careless in my prayer-life, bring me to that point of desperation – for You alone have the words of life. This I ask in Jesus name, AMEN.

“And she was in bitterness of soul, and prayed unto the LORD, and wept sore.”

Praying through 1 Samuel 1:11

Heavenly Father, thank You for the lovely story of Hannah, the maidservant of the Lord, whose prayer for a son was so graciously answered. You are a God who still answers the prayers and petitions of the humble, and today, we lift up those women, who long for a child to bless their lives, but who have remained barren. We believe that Your power to hear and answer our pleadings, is the same yesterday, today and for ever. And so we pray that You would hear and answer the desires of those, who today are crying out to You for a child. This we ask in Jesus name, AMEN.

“And she vowed a vow, and said, O LORD of hosts, if thou wilt indeed look on the affliction of thine handmaid, and remember me, and not forget thine handmaid, but wilt give unto thine handmaid a man child, then I will give him unto the LORD all the days of his life, and there shall no rasor come upon his head.”
(1 Samuel 1:11)

Heavenly Father and Lord of Hosts, thank You that You are a God who hears the cries of Your children and in Your grace You not only respond to our helplessness, but You use all things to work together for our benefit and for Your greater glory. Help me to live in an attitude of trusting prayer and I pray that You would align the desires of my heart to Your perfect will for my life.  Thank You that through Christ we have continuous access to Your throne of grace, for mercy to find help in time of need. Keep me from the selfish prayers.. and fully dependent on You and may Your will be done in my life - this I ask in Jesus' name, AMEN.

“And it came to pass, as she continued praying before the LORD, that Eli marked her mouth.”

Prayer For The Future Spouse Of My Grandchildren

Dear Heavenly Father, thank You for the lives of each of my lovely grandchildren that You have so graciously brought into my life. They all give me such joy and pleasure, for which I praise and thank You.

Lord, You have scheduled every day of their lives, and I pray that as they grow up into adulthood You would continue to lead and guide, to instruct and to correct. Father, I also pray that You would develop in each one a heavenly perspective and a true understanding of the Christian life and spiritual maturity, so that they grow in grace and in a right relationship with You.

Bring the right spouse into the life of each of these dear grandchildren of mine I pray. In Your grace I pray that they be granted the husband or wife of Your choice, so that together they may become a threefold cord with You, which is not easily broken.

Thank You, Lord so much, for every one of my grandchildren. Into Your hands I commit each one. May they sense Your calling on their lives, so that they develop into mighty men and women who love You deeply and trust in You implicitly. In Jesus' name I pray,

Amen.

“For this child I prayed; and the LORD hath given me my petition which I asked of him:”
(1 Samuel 1:27)
