Bible Belles: Becoming A Belle Of Prayer

"God gave you a special superpower - the Power of Prayer!"

There are five main superpowers of the Bible Belles: Prayer, Patience, Bravery, Loyalty, and Leadership. Today you’re going to find out how you can use your first superpower: the Power of Prayer. We can see how prayer is a power when we look at the story of Hannah in 1 Samuel.

Read 1 Samuel 1:1-20.

Hannah was treated harshly by Peninnah. It would have been very easy for Hannah to shut down, get angry, or try to handle the problem herself. Instead, she brought her feelings to God in prayer and told Him the truth inside her own heart. 

And just as God heard Hannah’s prayer, He hears yours, too. Every single one. 
    
Maybe you never thought that much about it before. Think about it right now. You have the ability to talk to God, and God can hear everything you say. God, the Creator of the entire universe, stops what He’s doing and listens to you when you talk to Him. Amazing!
