Looking at first and second Samuel we will see things that went on with Israel. The first thing I noticed even back then the people who believed in God prayed and they were answered according to their faith in God. Hannah was one of the wives of Elkabah and Hannah had no children and she was picked on by his other wife but, Hanna prayed for a child and had the priest to for for her. God heard their prayer and blessed her with a son. Hannah made a promise to God that if he gave her a child she would give the child back to him and she devoted her first son Samuel to God as she promised. Today we will discuss the blessings of God for Israel and the men of God who made many bad decisions.
