At Issue - Prayer

1 Samuel 1:10–18

If someone called and said that you’d just won a million dollars, what would your first response be? “Wow, thanks! I’ll expect it in my bank account today!” Not likely. Usually when we hear outrageous promises, our cynicism kicks into high gear. This is a natural response to most situations, except one—prayer. See, when God makes exorbitant promises (like answering our prayers of faith), he actually means what he says. He’s a real “you’ve just won the jackpot!” kind of God. When you truly believe this, your response to prayer will be like Hannah’s. You’ll drop your suspicions because you expect God to answer for your good.
