For This Child We Have Prayed Verse
The story in 1 Samuel begins with Hannah's struggle to have a child. She longs for a baby, and her heartache affects her so much that she can barely eat. The painful situation continues year after year.
The people around her do not provide her with support and encouragement. Her rival provokes and irritates her. Even her husband doesn't seem to fully empathize with her pain.
One day she weeps so bitterly at the temple that Eli the priest believes she is drunk. When he speaks to her about her drunkenness she says, "I am a woman who is deeply troubled. I have not been drinking wine or beer; I was pouring out my soul to the Lord."
Eli encourages her and also desires that God answer her prayer for a child. He says, "Go in peace, and may the God of Israel grant you what you have asked of him."
She goes away encouraged. She is able to eat, and she worships the Lord. Soon God blesses her with a son, and she names him Samuel.
When Hannah presents her Samuel at the temple she says, " I prayed for this child, and the Lord has granted me what I asked of him. So now I give him to the Lord. For his whole life he will be given over to the Lord.”
Samuel grows up, learns to hear God's voice, and eventually becomes the prophet who anoints David as King of Israel.
