May 10, 2020 Speaker: Michael Knight Series: Special Topics

Topic: Godly Womanhood Passage: 1 Samuel 1:1–2:10

Godly believers struggle, too. How should we respond when we go through hard things or deal with disappointments? Hannah struggled as a barren woman, but she turned to God. Let's examine the life of Hannah to learn how we should deal with the difficulties of life.

  1. Hannah was a woman of prayer. (1 Samuel 1:1-20)
  • Her condition when she prayed:
    • She was really struggling in her heart. (1 Samuel 1:10)
    • She was really struggling with her emotions.
    • She prayed to God about her struggles.
  • Her manner when she prayed:
    • She prayed fervently. (1 Samuel 1:10; James 5:16)
    • She prayed humbly. (1 Samuel 1:11)
    • She prayed specifically. (1 Samuel 1:11)
    • She prayed unselfishly. (1 Samuel 1:11: James 4:3)
    • She prayed persistently. (1 Samuel 1:12; Luke 18:1-8)
    • She prayed privately. (1 Samuel 1:12-16; Matthew 6:1-4)
    • She prayed believingly (1 Samuel 1:18; Mark 11:24)
  1. Hannah was a woman of integrity. (1 Samuel 1:21-28)
  • She generously and eagerly presented Samuel back to the Lord. (1 Samuel 1:24-28)
  • She encouraged Samuel in his service for the Lord. (1 Samuel 2:11, 18-21)
  1. Hannah was a woman of praise. (1 Samuel 2:1-10)
  2. Hannah was a woman of influence.
  • Samuel became one of the greatest judges and prophets in Israel. (1 Samuel 7:3; Jeremiah 15;1; Psalm 99:6)
  • God used a godly mom to influence a nation.
