May 11: Praise to God

Let us join with Hannah as she prayed:

1 Samuel 2:1-8

 “My heart rejoices in the Lord; 
my horn is exalted in the Lord. 
I smile at my enemies, 
because I rejoice in Your salvation.

 “No one is holy like the Lord, 
for there is none besides You, 
nor is there any rock like our God.

 “Talk no more so very proudly; 
let no arrogance come from your mouth, 
for the Lord is the God of knowledge; 
and by Him actions are weighed.

 “The bows of the mighty men are broken, 
and those who stumbled are girded with strength.

Those who were full have hired themselves out for bread, 
and the hungry have ceased to hunger. 
Even the barren has borne seven, 
and she who has many children has become feeble.

 “The Lord kills and makes alive; 
He brings down to the grave and brings up.

The Lord makes poor and makes rich; 
He brings low and lifts up.

He raises the poor from the dust
and lifts the beggar from the ash heap, 
to set them among princes 
and make them inherit the throne of glory.

“For the pillars of the earth are the Lord’s, 
and He has set the world upon them.


The port at Joffa from which Jonah sailed.
