I have always loved the story of Hannah praying for a child. Many times we have asked God fopr something important - like a child. Sometimes we don't feel or see that God is listening to us. But He does. He always knows what is best for us and what is the right time for Him to give us his answer.
Eli answered, “Go in peace, and may the God of Israel grant you what you have asked of him.” She said, “May your servant find favor in your eyes.” Then she went her way and ate something, and her face was no longer downcast. - 1 Samuel 1: 17 - 18
