1:22 Weaned - Not only from the breast, but also from the mother's knee and care, and from childish food; 'till the child be something grown up, and fit to do some service in the tabernacle: for it seems that as soon as he was brought up he worshipped God, ver.#28|, and presently after ministered to Eli, chap.#2:11|.

    April: To promise God---, they're already in Sin. God told us to ask: Be careful for nothing but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your request be known unto God. Philippians 4:6/ this is the confidence that we have in him that if we ask anything according to his will,he heareth us: if we know that he hear us---we have the petitions that we desire of Him. 1John 5:14-15

    I do remember reading in a prior book and other books throughout the bible, speaking on the part of promising something to God and or other people and if you break that promise it is considered a sin,it is better to not promise something with thy lios then to promise something and not follow through,father follows through his words,question is do we? I made a promise to God I am going to keep it!

    I have seen, so far, just one comment on the back pgs. - of 'deal making' with Gog: "Lord, if you will do this, I will do that." That will not work; God does not make deals; it's God's way or the hell way.

    Despite the discouragement words from Peninneh, Hannah used her Spiritul Instrucment which is prayer effectively and efficiently, another test came through the high priest, but Hannah was not discouraged because she was focused. Jesus told His disciples that "Howblt this kind goeth not out but by prayer and fasting. She got answer to her prayer. May God give us the spirit of prayer.
