  1. I enjoyed reading about Samuel as a child. 1 Samuel 2:26 says, “And the child Samuel grew, in stature and in favor both with the Lord and men.” This is a line I use in a prayer that I pray every night for my children. When I’m telling them “Goodnight,” I pray, “Lord bless ___ and keep him, make Your face to shine upon him. Raise Your countenance on him and give him peace. Continue to help him grown in wisdom and stature and favor with You and with men. Whenever he turns to the right or to the left, I pray he hears Your command saying, ‘This is the way; walk in it.’ Keep him on your path. Illuminate his steps, so he knows which way to go. Continue to unfold the great plans You have for him. In Jesus’ name, Amen.”
    If you are not praying daily for/with your children, you should start today. Write down your prayer, but soon you’ll have it memorized (and they will too!) I got this idea from Priscilla Shirer, who prays a blessing over her children daily. Here’s that Post:


  2. A wondering that came up for me was what the timing was in all of Samuel’s early years. Obviously he had a faithful and wonderful mother in Hannah, but then was transferred to Eli’s care. Did Eli fail to raise his own sons properly so did better with Samuel? Or did he do his best with his sons, and they chose the evil way when they were older? Is God to receive all of the credit for Samuel’s virtue and character?

    Enjoyed this part of the MHCC for this passage:
    “Let young people consider the piety of Samuel, and from him they will learn to remember their Creator in the days of their youth. Young children are capable of religion. Samuel is a proof that their waiting upon the Lord will be pleasing to him.” It is rare that we have held Samuel up to our children as an example, but I plan to do so more in the future!

    Thank you also for your wisdom regarding praying over our children – I will be starting that TONIGHT!
