TEXT: 1 SAMUEL 2: 1-10
1And Hannah prayed, and said, My heart rejoiceth in the Lord, mine horn is exalted in the Lord: my mouth is enlarged over mine enemies; because I rejoice in thy salvation.
2 There is none holy as the Lord: for there is none beside thee: neither is there any rock like our God.
3 Talk no more so exceeding proudly; let not arrogancy come out of your mouth: for the Lord is a God of knowledge, and by him actions are weighed.
4 The bows of the mighty men are broken, and they that stumbled are girded with strength.
5 They that were full have hired out themselves for bread; and they that were hungry ceased: so that the barren hath born seven; and she that hath many children is waxed feeble.
6 The Lord killeth, and maketh alive: he bringeth down to the grave, and bringeth up.
7 The Lord maketh poor, and maketh rich: he bringeth low, and lifteth up.
8 He raiseth up the poor out of the dust, and lifteth up the beggar from the dunghill, to set them among princes, and to make them inherit the throne of glory: for the pillars of the earth are the Lord's, and he hath set the world upon them.
9 He will keep the feet of his saints, and the wicked shall be silent in darkness; for by strength shall no man prevail.
10 The adversaries of the Lord shall be broken to pieces; out of heaven shall he thunder upon them: the Lord shall judge the ends of the earth; and he shall give strength unto his king, and exalt the horn of his anointed.
Key verse: 1 Samuel 2: “There is none holy as the LORD; for there is none beside Thee; neither is there any rock like our God.”
My name is Sister Jemimah from Taraba state chapter. I thank God for the wonderful
blessing He has given to my family. I have been married for nine years and praying
for the fruit of the womb but there was no issue. I attended the women conference
in 2022 and on the last night something remarkable happened. Mummy Linda gave
a revelation that the Lord Jesus has sent a white truck loaded with blessings and gifts
for all participants in the conference. She said the angels offloaded the blessings and
brought them right before the altar and encouraged us to make our requests to God
because the Lord has presented opportunity to everyone present to make requests
from Him. I prayed fervently and requested for God to bless me with a baby boy.
As I was deeply engrossed in prayers, my phone started ringing persistently. At first,
I ignored the phone and continued to pray; hoping that the caller would realize that
I was not disposed to pick the call but the phone continued to ring so I picked up the
phone to check the name of the caller and discovered that it was my husband calling
from home. I overcame the temptation to interrupt my prayers and did not answer
the call. I made sure that I prayed through until I received assurance from the Lord.
Thereafter, Daddy Paul Rika pronounced blessings on us and encouraged us that as
Eli pronounced an Amen on Hannah’s prayers, he has done so for our heart desires.
I believed God that my prayers have been answered.
Later, I called my husband back and asked him why he was calling me when I was
praying and asking God for blessings. He responded by saying, “Mummy, come with
the blessing of a baby.” I said, ‘Amen’ and assured my husband that the Lord has
already answered our prayers. After the conference, I went back home and for three
months, I could not see my monthly period. I went to the hospital for test and they
confirmed that I was pregnant. Praise the Lord! Nine months later I was safely
delivered of a bouncing baby boy in answer to our prayers. We have named him,
‘Shimaladi’; meaning, ‘I put my hope in God.’ Alleluia!
Thought for the day: There are always showers of blessings when God visits
Song for the day: O yes, He answers prayers …
Bible reading for the day: Ezekiel 40; 1 Peter 5
