Summary: When we begin to think God doesn’t listen to our prayers, we need to remember Hanna, a woman who was committed to prayer.
Hanna: An Example of Commitment and Purity
I Committed Heart
Why do we have what we possess?
Do we remember that God can still act for us?
Romans 14: How does your heart see others?
II Committed Actions
Look up and remember
Obey and keep commitments
Hebrews 12: Are we willing to give up things that aren’t sinful per se, to get closer to God?
III Committed Mission
Sometimes God blesses our faithful, hard work
Sometimes people follow like we follow because they watched us
Sometimes we get to watch God honor us as we’ve honored Him
2 Corinthians 4: Do our appointments with trouble push us off track, or do we get back on track?
