THE TESTIMONY OF A GODLY WOMAN
I Sam. 1:2-18
May 8, 1994
INTRODUCTION: Several lessons can be learned by studying about
this godly mother and her prayer life. It is for sure that if
we had more parents like Elkanah and Hannah, we would have more
godly men like Samuel.
While the people cry for a king, Hannah cries for a child. God
builds a throne on a woman's cry. When women take an exalted
place, God builds her a throne. On your prayer God built a
kingdom. What a tremendous tribute and wonderful monument to
this woman's cry.
Three Practical Lessons:
1. Never underestimate the power of sin in a home. Eli's sons
needed discipline, but he pampered them instead. This cost
his life and eventually the priesthood.
2. Never underestimate the power of prayer in a home. Hannah
and Elkanah were people of prayer and God answered their
prayers. God gave us Samuel, the best of the Judges and the
first of the prophets.
3. God speaks to children and young people, and adults should
make it easy for them to hear God's voice and respond in
The training of children in spiritual things is the greatest
responsibility in the world.
There are several people and events in this text, such as
(God has created a son), Hannah (grace), and Samuel (asked of
Lord). I want us to focus on the godly woman, Hannah.
I. PATIENCE DEMONSTRATED HER FAITHFULNESS TO GOD.
Patience can be seen:
