Almighty Just and Loving God, there is no one like you. You called Samuel to be your prophet while he was still a boy. He served faithfully with your Spirit upon him. My spirit testified with your Spirit in my teens as you called me to faith in Jesus. Allow me sensitivity to His promptings. Grant me discernment to act immediately when I feel them. Guide me in your purpose for my life, for there is no purpose more worthy. Forgive me where I fail you, for it is in the name and authority of Jesus that I pray, according to your good and perfect will. Amen.
“Therefore Eli said to Samuel, ‘Go, lie down, and if he calls you, you shall say, “Speak, Lord, for your servant hears.”‘ So Samuel went and lay down in his place. And the Lord came and stood, calling as at other times, ‘Samuel! Samuel!’ And Samuel said, ‘Speak, for your servant hears.’ Then the Lord said to Samuel, ‘Behold, I am about to do a thing in Israel at which the two ears of everyone who hears it will tingle.'” (1 Samuel 3: 9-12 ESV)
