May 18, 2011 I Lazaroo.

 

Ask God to enlighten your memory as you pray aloud the words of this Lazaroo:

“So in the course of time Hannah conceived and gave birth to a son. She named him Samuel, saying, ‘Because I asked the LORD for him.’”
(1 Samuel 1:20)

O Jesus.

How much of what I now have is mine…
solely because I asked You for it?

How many prayers have I hurled at heaven
desperate for Your intervention

then received…enjoyed…

completely overlooking the fact that they were answers to prayer?

Hannah didn’t make that mistake.

She begged You for a son

waited…
trusting…

…for as long as it took.

And then her prayer became a living, breathing baby in her arms!

She called him “Samuel,” which means

“Name of God”
“Asked”

because she knew exactly who had done this for her:

You.

Maybe it’s time I named a few of my blessings after You, Father

just to remind me that everything I have

comes from Your hand.
