ISRAEL NEEDED A PROPHET. HANNAH NEEDED A CHILD. IN ORDER TO DO SOMETHING EXTRAORDINARY AND TO SUPPLY ISRAEL WITH A DELIVERER, GOD HAD TO INCITE PRAYER FROM A WOMAN.
Is it no wonder, that at this time in our nation and world, the Holy Spirit is awakening the hearts of mothers to cry out for their children. These children will not only be saved from desperate times; they will be used of God to deliver others and change the culture. The dedication of the child depends on the consecration of the mother. In this devotion, which includes a Leader's Guide for small group study, you will be inspired to . . .
• Give your child whole-heartedly to God all the days of their lives.
• Speak to the darkness and see the daylight conform.
• Turn your desperation into outrageous, faith-filled prayers that will incite God to move on your behalf.
• Make a radical move toward God that will transform your life and the lives of those whom you love.

If it works for me, it will for you too!”
