What are we asking for?
First Lesson: 1 Samuel 1:4-20
Second Lesson: 1 Samuel 2:1-10
Hannah came to the temple at Shiloh to ask for a miracle. She begged, wept, bargained, and ultimately received what she asked for. Her audacity as a woman in a patriarchal society to come into the sanctuary and meet God reminds us that we ought also to be seeking God – and asking. But what is it we are desperate for? As a faith community, we might want relevance and growth. As individuals, we might want unity or healing. Whatever the case, we can ask, and then give our joys and sorrows to a God who sustains us.
