I. EXORDIUM:

Hannah or "channah" in Hebrew meaning "favored". The ALEPH-TAV, the Beginning and the End, the First and the Last, the ALPHA and OMEGA's signature was placed after the word "called" giving it emphasis and special meaning "invite, preach, pronounce, proclaim, publish, read". Samuel or "shemuel" in Hebrew meaning "heard of GOD"

Thus our title came into being, Favor Called, Heard of GOD. or Called favor, GOD heard or Favor Called, GOD heard. The LORD JESUS CHRIST who does the calling or praying to GOD on behalf of Hannah was heard of GOD.
