She said, “may your servant find favour in your eyes” Then she went her way and ate something and her face was no longer downcast.
Today, let us too find favour in Our Father God’s eyes, let us think of something nice to do for Him today, then we too can celebrate with something good to eat and our face need not be downcast.
The story is about Hannah the Mother of Samuel who was praying in her heart to God in the Temple. As her lips were moving they thought she was drunk as no words were coming out of her mouth.
It is good to remember that we do not always have to pray out loud for our Father in Heaven to hear what we are praying and hoping for in our hearts.
Maybe today we can do something nice for someone, then we need not feel downcast……(that’s if we were in the first place) But what ever we do – it should be done for the Lord. It could be just a kind word for someone, or a phone call to keep in touch. If we help someone in anyway at all that would be a blessing for them. So if Jesus is your Lord and Saviour – what a lovely thing to do something nice for Him today. One Special thing to do is to pray for someone and ask that God would kindly bless them. They do not need to know that you have prayed for them. God our Father in Heaven will hear the prayers of your heart just as He did with Hannah, Samuel’s Mother as it says so in The Bible.
Hear is a link to – Book of Prayers – this is a help for people who are not sure how or what to pray for and a reminder to some of us that there are other things and people that need our prayer. I hope it will be useful to many especially to new Christians if they cannot find the help they need.
