  • A Mother’s Commitment

Samuel is one of the key Old Testament figures in Israel’s history.  His story begins with his mother’s broken heart over her barrenness and the amazing commitment she makes to the Lord if he would grant her request for a son.  The resulting prayer Hannah offers to the Lord is filled with praise and worship.  It is strikingly similar to the song of another woman  who miraculously conceives a son – Mary, the mother of Jesus.
