FDD27 in His Hands


This entry is part 23 of 27 in the series Fifty Days of Desperation

She was deeply distressed and prayed to the Lord and wept bitterly. And she vowed a vow and said, “O Lord of hosts, if you will indeed look on the affliction of your servant and remember me and not forget your servant, but will give to your servant a son, then I will give him to the Lord all the days of his life, and no razor shall touch his head.”” (1 Samuel 1:10–11, ESV)

Hannah serves as the example of a woman who gave her child completely into God’s hand. In the midst of her misery she prayed, pouring out her soul before the Lord (1 Samuel 1:15). Indeed in just a short time she had a son (1 Samuel 1:20) and named him Samuel, and when he had grown but only a little she took him to the tabernacle and gave him completely over to God.

For this child I prayed, and the Lord has granted me my petition that I made to him. Therefore I have lent him to the Lord. As long as he lives, he is lent to the Lord.” And he worshiped the Lord there.” (1 Samuel 1:27–28, ESV)

Will you do that with your soul burden? Will you completely give it to God for every day and every moment? I can see no greater description of urgent prayer than pouring out your soul.

Pour out your soul to God over the things that distress you.

Cry out for your family. Cry out for your church. Cry out in your distress and give to Him whatever comes next.
