1 Samuel 2:3

Do not keep talking so proudly or let your mouth speak such arrogance, for the Lord is a God who knows, and by him deeds are weighed.

Insight: In Hannah’s prayer, she repeats a reality she has witnessed in her own life, “the Lord is a God who knows.” How often do I pray as if to a God that does not know? God knows the depths of our souls. When I feel alone, ashamed, confused, angry… I do not come to a God who does not understand. He is a God who knows.

Prayer: To the Lord God who knows, help us to pray with confidence. Do not let us grow weary, believing we are on this journey alone. You are abundantly aware of our sorrow and our triumphant. Thank you for your personal decision to be God with us and to be a God who knows.
