Dear Parents, We hope the following summary of the Sunday School lesson will help you in discussing the lesson with your children and working through this booklet together.

Samuel’s Birth

SCRIPTURE PASSAGE:

1 Samuel 1:1-2:11 BIBLE STORY SUMMARY: Hannah and Elkanah have not been able to have children, although Peninnah, Elhanan's other wife, has borne him children. Peninnah is jealous of Hannah’s standing with Elkanah and ridicules her about the children. Elkanah is a faithful follower of the Lord and leads his family to worship and sacrifice three times a year at the Shiloh. On one of these trips, Hannah leaves a family meal to find solstice in her worship of prayer at the tabernacle. The priest sees her and confuses her dedication in prayer with drunkenness. As Eli realizes Hannah’s strong faith, he excuses her with a blessing. Hannah, Elkanah and family return home and within the Lord’s timing, Hannah gives birth to a little boy. She names him Samuel which sounds like “heard from God” because she had specifically asked for him and God responded. When Samuel is old enough to live without mom and dad, Hannah returns to the tabernacle and places him in the care of Eli and the Lord.

LESSON FOCUS: To realize that when it seems that our life isn’t going right, we should turn to the Lord in prayer. To understand that the Lord’s timing is perfect and that the best thing for us is not always to get what seems right to us, but to be living in the Lord’s will and timing.

WHAT WE LEARNED ABOUT GOD: God always wants the best for me. He is always listening and desires that I bring my triumphs and troubles to Him, willing to wait on His timing.

RESPONSE: To be anxious to bring all the details of my life, big and small to the Lord. To consider prayer my first course of action, not my last line of defense.

BIBLE MEMORY VERSE: O LORD, hear my prayer, listen to my cry for mercy; in Your faithfulness and righteousness come to my relief. Psalms 143:1

God’s Response to Hannah’s Prayer This Week’s Memory Verse: O LORD, hear my prayer, listen to my cry for mercy; in Your faithfulness and righteousness come to my relief.
