1 Samuel 1:11 (NLT)
And she made this vow: “O Lord of Heaven’s Armies, if you will look upon my sorrow and answer my prayer and give me a son, then I will give him back to you. He will be yours for his entire lifetime, and as a sign that he has been dedicated to the Lord, his hair will never be cut.”
1 Samuel 2:1 (NLT)
Then Hannah prayed:
“My heart rejoices in the Lord!
The Lord has made me strong.
Now I have an answer for my enemies;
I rejoice because you rescued me.
Father, I only want what you have for me. Money, fame and things don’t satisfy. I love you, and all I have is yours. I give my all to you.
“All to Jesus I surrender,
Lord, I give myself to Thee;
Fill me with Thy love and power,
Let Thy blessing fall on me”
(Van de Venter / Weeden)
Pray through Psalm 7 and Proverbs 7. Write out everything that God has challenged you with.
Psalm 7:7 (NLT) “Gather the nations before you, Rule over them from on high.” God alone is sovereign! Touching on what Pastor Sarah discussed in Sunday’s message; Psalm 7:10 (NLT) God is my shield, saving those whose hearts are true and right.
