I Samuel 1:27   Thought/Prayer:  Pray, Petition.  Topics:  2 at end.

After Hannah was barren and beseeched the Lord for a child and was given Samuel, she tells Eli the priest: “For this child I prayed; and the LORD hath given me my petition which I asked of him: . . . .” KJV http://www.bible.com (Read this scripture and more at http://prayerpivot.com)

I just signed a petition to bring to justice a situation involving pro-life interests. This reminded me of Hannah’s petition to the Lord to be given a child. A petition, of course, is a request. We read of them many times in the Bible. 1 John 5:15 tells us, “And if we know that he hear us, whatsoever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we desired of him. KJV

It is wonderful that the petition Hannah sent up to God resulted in a child. Prayer Pivot for Life is all about children – and also about the adults they grow to be and their stages of life. This scripture, the story of Hannah and her anguish at being barren is a wonderful inspiration for those of us in the pro-life battle. Lord, let us remember Hannah and your gift to her, Samuel the prophet, when we become discouraged and have great angst about the situation in our world regarding the cherishing of LIFE. Lord, encourage us with the birth of many many babies for whom death in the womb was planned. And, if possible, Lord, it would be wonderful if some of the news of these victories could be passed on to those of us who pray.
