In Children's Church this week, we studied the story of Hannah's prayer to God. Samuel 1:1-20

Here are a few questions to start up conversations with your children about God's hand in Hannah's story.

  1. Why was Hannah crying and praying to God?

  2. Why didn't Hannah have any children?

  3. What did Hannah promise God?

  4. Did Hannah fulfill/keep her promise to God?

  5. Do we always get what we have prayed for? Why not? James 4:3 (Here is one possible reason.)

  6. God knew that Hannah's first child would be Samuel. Do you know of any special work God had for Samuel to do? (hint: He anointed two kings and from one king's line Christ our Savior was born!!!)
