Devotion on Motherhood, Prayer, Christian Living, 1 Samuel 1:27-28a. 1 page.

“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” (1 Samuel 1:27-28a).

What is the best gift a mother can give her child? I believe it is to pray for that child and surrender them to the Lord as Hannah did with Samuel in the verse we just read. We obviously will not physically surrender our children to the local pastor, but we can lay their lives at Jesus’ feet. We can pray for our children, grandchildren, nieces, nephews, and friends.
