A Brief Overview Of Samuel
Samuel who was the first of Israel`s great prophets, and
the last of the judges. Samuel`s mother Hannah (who was
barren) had prayed for a son.
1 Sam 1:10-11 And she was in bitterness of soul, and prayed
to the LORD and wept in anguish. Then she made a vow and
said, "O LORD of hosts, if You will indeed look on the
affliction of Your maidservant and remember me, and not
forget Your maidservant, but will give Your maidservant a
male child, then I will give him to the LORD all the days
of his life. . ."
She praised God when He answered her prayer and gave her a
child. Hannah gave Samuel to the priest, Eli, so he could
be taught to serve the Lord.
