On Sunday we launched our new series on “Powerful Prayers.” The first person we looked at was Hannah who prayed for a child and then prayed again rejoicing over what God had done. If you’ve ever wanted something so desperately that you shed tears praying for it, then you have something in common with Hannah. At first Hannah felt afflicted and forgotten and it was ok to express that. You feel what you feel. But later she confesses the truth about who God is, and when we see who God is, our perspective begins to change.
Can you exhibit confident trust in God, not because you’re prayers are answered the way you want them to be answered, but because of who God is?
