21 Days of Prayer Devotional
Day 5
Ellen Chalmers / 1 Samuel 1


As she continued praying before the Lord, Eli observed her mouth. Hannah was speaking in her heart; only her lips moved, and her voice was not heard. Therefore Eli took her to be a drunken woman. And Eli said to her, “how long will you go on being drunk? Put your wine away from you.” But Hannah answered, “no, my lord, I am a woman troubled in spirit. I have drunk neither wine nor strong drink, but I have been pouring out my soul before the Lord.”


Thought of the day

Because Hannah poured herself out to the Lord and made her request known the Lord rewarded her with her son Samuel who would be given a place of honor in God’s storyline of redemption. God is a rewarder of those who diligently seek him. We should not suppress our desires but make them known to the Lord in wholehearted prayer.

Questions to ponder

-What are some unfulfilled desires in my heart? Ask the Lord to reveal them to you.

-When, today, can I get alone with God and freely express these desires to the Lord?


TAKE THE CITY outreaches have been so special to me. I love being able to see the hand of GOD move in peoples lives as they are healed and families restored. GOD cares about every detail of our lives and he reaches the places that only HE can only heal! Its been an honor to see all the teams go out and share the LOVE that GOD has instilled and filled the teams with, and let it pour out to all the community. Having physical needs met also assures all we encounter, the faithfulness of our Father. So many times I have cried seeing what GOD is doing… Being able to see people brought into the KINGDOM and freedom Spirit, Soul, Mind and Body. Is the greatest treasure in my life. I am grateful for TAKE THE CITY allowing me to have front seat and seeing GOD move in peoples lives!
