The Prayer of a Parent
Passage: 1 Samuel 1:1–20
Have you ever been waiting on a package, a friend to call you back, a sale to go through at work, a test result, a prayer to be answered, or a circumstance to change? All of us have. Sometimes the outcome is a great blessing and other times, it is not. We begin a new series this week in 1 Samuel – a book filled with political and religious upheaval but weaved throughout the book is a constant thread of the power of family and faith. The opening chapter brings great encouragement to us regarding the power of prayer.
