Bible: 1 Samuel 1:9-11

1:9 On one occasion in Shiloh, after they had finished eating and drinking, Hannah got up. 1  (Now at the time Eli the priest was sitting in his chair 2  by the doorpost of the Lord’s temple.) 1:10 She was very upset 3  as she prayed to the Lord, and she was weeping uncontrollably. 4  1:11 She made a vow saying, “O Lord of hosts, if you will look with compassion 5  on the suffering of your female servant, 6  remembering me and not forgetting your servant, and give a male child 7  to your servant, then I will dedicate him to the Lord all the days of his life. His hair will never be cut.” 8
