I Samuel 1:17-18
“Then Eli answered and said, “Go in peace, and the God of Israel grant your petition which you have asked of Him.” And she said, “Let your maidservant find favor in your sight.” So the woman went her way and ate, and her face was no longer sad.”
-After the sacrificial meal at Shiloh was over, Hannah rose up disheartened to pour out her grief in her childless situation & prayed for Gods’ mercy. Eli’s prophecy that the Lord may grant her request encouraged her & she believed. In the same way we might be carrying many burdens & prayer petitions in our hearts, some we have prayed for a long time & have become discouraged. We are called to approach Christs’ mercy seat that our prayers may be answered & find His grace & peace.
Lord Almighty Father, You are the Alpha & Omega; the Beginning & the End; the First & the Last. We come before You today with humility in our hearts to Your mercy seat Dear Jesus & place all our prayer petitions before You that You may grant us our requests. Have mercy on us, our families, leaders & nation Father & answer all our prayers. Victory & power belong to You Lord, we believe that now is the time of victory & salvation merciful Father. We give You thanks & glorify Your holy name Father in firm belief that You have already done it for us. Amen
