For this child I prayed, and the Lord has granted me my petition which I asked of Him. Therefore I also have lent him to the Lord ; as long as he lives he shall be lent to the Lord .” So they worshiped the Lord there.
I Samuel 1:27-28 NKJV
Dear Lord Jesus,
Thank You for Your faithfulness! Lord, I love the heart of Hannah, how she asked of You and gave her son to You. I love how he became a godly man, serving You all his days. Lord, as a mother, I have given the children You have placed in our home back to You. I know they belong to You and You love them more than I can possibly imagine. Lord Jesus, please let each one follow and serve You their whole lives. Please let their faith spread to those around them, that they might be testimonies to You. Lord, please help me to be diligent in my life, that I might know how to pray for them, how to encourage them, how to confront them, how to be the mother they need most. Lord Jesus, please help me to be the wife who loves and supports her husband, an example for my daughters and a blessing to my husband. Lord Jesus, for those who are in different circumstances than mine, please guide and direct them. Please teach them how to pray, how to listen for Your Word. Lord Jesus, please hold them in Your hand and guide their hearts with Your Word. Lord, You alone are worthy of all praise, all honor, all glory. You save the lost. You return the prodigal. You heal the sick, the hurting, the broken. You protect the innocent. You feed the hungry. May the world understand Who You are and what You have done, that Your name might be glorified! Thank You, Jesus! Amen.
