Apostle Grace Lubega
1 Samuel 1:15-18 (KJV); And Hannah answered and said, No, my lord, I am a woman of a sorrowful spirit: I have drunk neither wine nor strong drink, but have poured out my soul before the Lord. Count not thine handmaid for a daughter of Belial: for out of the abundance of my complaint and grief have I spoken hitherto. Then Eli answered and said, Go in peace: and the God of Israel grant thee thy petition that thou hast asked of him. And she said, Let thine handmaid find grace in thy sight. So the woman went her way, and did eat, and her countenance was no more sad.
There are situations in life that require us to pray through them. In such matters, it is not enough to pray and hope for the answer.
Hannah found herself in one such situation. She was tired of her state of childlessness and she was utterly frustrated by the constant mockery by her co-wife Penninah.
Because she needed change, she decided to pray through this matter until she got an answer. In our theme scripture, the Bible says that after her prayer, she went her way, ate and her countenance was no more sad.
This was the attitude of a woman who had prayed through barrenness and seen the light of a fruitful womb.
When you pray through, you leave the presence of God with an assurance that it is done.
Here are some of the signs that you have prayed through a matter: a deep sense of peace, a great sense of joy or even the voice of God assuring you that it is well.
Praying through is part of the wisdom of prayer and an art in warfare you must learn and understand.

PRAYER: Loving Father, I thank You for this word. Thank you for the power of answered prayer. The Bible says that this is the confidence that we have, that when we pray, you hear us and because you hear us, we have the petitions that we ask of you. I get into prayer with this confidence, knowing that whatsoever I ask of you, you provide. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
