Jan. 9, 2018 (1 Sam 1:9-20)

The power of prayer is shown in the First Reading for today as Hannah prays for a son (she is barren). God gives her a son who is called “Samuel,” which means “the name of God.” Samuel will be the last great judge/prophet before the establishment of the Kingdom of Israel. We’ll follow Samuel’s story in the coming days.
