Intro – Every Mother’s day and Father’s day I am reminded of how blessed I was to have godly Christian parents who trained me up to follow the Lord and to know the way of salvation. Today being Mother’s day I want to look at some examples of godly mothers in the Bible.

 

I. Hannah, the mother of Samuel. 1Sam.1:20

            A. A believer and a woman of prayer. 1Sam.1:13-15

            B. She gave her child to the Lord. 1Sam.1:27-28
