The Lord Hears
Passage: 1 Samuel 1:1–20
This message sets the stage for the book of 1 Samuel, and explores the birth story of Samuel, God's prophet. The text zeroes in on a barren woman named Hannah, and displays her bold, passionate faith in God in the midst of her brokenness. Be encouraged by God's readiness to listen to the burdens of his people, and be challenged to take your own faith deeper with fervent prayer.
