“Go in peace”–part one

1 Samuel 1:15-17 (NLT) Eli the priest to Hannah, travailing for a descendant
“Oh no, sir!” she replied. “I haven’t been drinking wine or anything stronger. But I am very discouraged, and I was pouring out my heart to the Lord. Don’t think I am a wicked woman! For I have been praying out of great anguish and sorrow.”

“In that case,” Eli said, “go in peace! May the God of Israel grant the request you have asked of him.”

Our Father in heaven,
As You looked upon the prayers of Hannah with favor, we humbly beseech You to likewise look upon the prayers for the cessation of abortion in the state of Mississippi. New life, Lord. We cry out for new life. Amen.
