Galatians 6:14

But God forbid that I should boast except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world.

Hannah's Prayer

As I was doing quiet time 2 days ago, I read this beautiful passage from 1 Samuel 2. I love how it speaks of the greatness of our God and how He uses the weak to accomplish His purposes.
May this be our prayer as well!

1 Samuel 2:1-10
And Hannah prayed and said:
"My heart rejoices in the Lord;
my horn is exalted in the Lord.
I smile at my enemies,
because I rejoice in Your salvation.
No one is holy like the Lord,
for there is none besides You,
nor is there any rock like our God.
Talk no more so very proudly;
let no arrogance come from your mouth,
for the Lord is the God of knowledge;
and by Him actions are weighed.
The bows of the mighty men are broken,
and those who stumbled are girded with
Those who were full have hired
themselves out for bread,
and the hungry have ceased to hunger.
Even the barren has borne seven,
and she who has many children has
become feeble.
The Lord kills and makes alive;
He brings down to the grave and brings
The Lord makes poor and makes rich;
He brings low and lifts up.
He raises the poor from the dust
and lifts the beggar from the ash heap,
to set them among princes
and make them inherit the throne of
For the pillars of the earth are the
and He has set the world upon them.
He will guard the feet of His saints,
but the wicked shall be silent in
For by strength no man shall prevail.
The adversaries of the Lord shall be broken in pieces;
from heaven He will thunder against
The Lord will judge the ends of the
He will give strength to His king,
and exalt the horn of His anointed."

Be encouraged,
