Hannah’s Prayer

February 11, 2014 | My Jottings

Apparently this video has been around for a while, but I’m out of the loop and saw it for the first time the night before last. Sara came into our room right after we went to bed so Michael and I could watch this on her laptop. If you haven’t seen it, you will love it. You might even laugh. You might even cry. I did both.

Little Hannah starts off slowly, but gets going in prayer with her mother’s encouragement and I couldn’t help but wonder what God thinks of this little beauty. Someone, somewhere, is bringing joy to the heart of God.

My first laugh came when I heard Hannah say in prayer, “And Lord we’re not supposed to raise our voice to our pastor!” I think that’s a good motto to live by, don’t you?

I also like how she said “You can do anything Lord! You can fix this whole house!”

Is there anyone among us who doesn’t earnestly desire for Jesus to come and fix our whole house?

    Nope! Haven’t seen that one! Just incredible her verbalizing an understanding of the gospel that many adults can’t even express ….me included! But I have 2 admit I started wondering who the guy on the bed was & if he was sleeping thru this bouncy little chattering prayer?! Who cld sleep thru that?!….ok I’ll just go with he was “slayed in the spirit” & just couldn’t respond! Had me chuckling I have to admit!
    Thanks 4 sharing this “prayer event”!

    I was sort of thinking the same thing, Linda, but then when Sara and I watched it again, we heard Hannah pray for her sick Papa and that he had been to the doctor. So maybe he was really feeling rotten. I did hear him agreeing with Hannah a few times. 🙂 I hope you are safe and inside — we just saw the forecast for your part of the country! xoxo
