I Can’t Do This On My Own!

I Can’t Do This On My Own!

Passage: 1 Samuel 1:9-18

Speaker: Dr. Steven Laufer

Series: Shear Shave Shine

Category: Sunday Sermons

Keywords: deliverance, plea, prayer, restoration

A second common area of prayer seen throughout the Old Testament is the Plea. Whereas the protest cries out for God’s attention and action regarding something in the world around us, the plea primarily does the same for something uniquely personal to us as individuals. We cry out to God for help, be it for deliverance, provision, restoration, relief, mercy, or something else, hoping and believing that our prayer will draw God’s attention and move him to action on our behalf. (1 Sam 1:9-18; Ps 7)
