Read 1 Samuel 1:1-11 out loud with your child.
Ask the following question and discuss the answer together as a family.
Q: What kinds of things comfort you when you’re sad?
Parent Note: Hannah was sad because she wanted to have a baby. It’s okay to feel sad sometimes (even Jesus felt sadness!), but we can celebrate the comfort and hope that comes from knowing that one day we will get to spend forever with Jesus.
Pray this out loud together:
Dear God, You are the Great Comforter
Thank you for knowing and caring about how I feel
Please help me to trust the promises that You’ve made to me
In Jesus’s name I pray, amen
