A Prayer of Rejoicing—1 Samuel 1:1—2:11

samuel_3kc  “Hannah sang her song at a time when there was not yet a king in Israel. ‘He will give strength to his king, and exalt the power of his anointed’ (1 Sam. 2:10). She opened her song by talking about herself, about how she had been exalted. God had greatly blessed her. But that was not a note on which to end.
“At the end of her song, Hannah mentioned the promised king, the Messiah. She did not have a clear and detailed picture of Him before her eyes, but she was firmly convinced that there would indeed be a king, and that her son would help prepare the way for Him.” (C. Vanderwaal, Search the Scriptures, Vol. 4, pp. 9-10).

Tonight’s Bible study (at Trinity Presbyterian Church of the OPC) focuses on Hannah’s prayer, 1 Samuel 1:1—2:11. You are welcome to join us.
