Hannah’s Prayer (1 Samuel 1)
Don (D); Ronnie (R)puppet
D. Hi Ronnie. What’s been happening?
R. Hi Mr S. I’ve been thinking…
D. Well that’s interesting.
R. I wonder what it’s like to hear voices in your head. I hear you say..
D. Are you hearing voices?
R. No. I was just thinking about it and got side-swiped.
D. I think you mean ''side-tracked''.
R. Yes. I was going to be thinking about lunch.
D. Well we’re thinking about a story from the Bible about a lady called Hannah.
D. No not Montana… Hannah.
R. Hannah Montana … lived in Rosanna (or born in Havana)
D. No she didn’t. Hannah was the wife of a guy called v Elkanah and lived a long time ago.
R. What happened to her?
D. I’m glad you asked.
R. I just heard something in my head saying…
D. Hannah desperately wanted to have a baby but she hadn’t been able to and Hannah prayed a special prayer to God and she was blessed with a son called Samuel – which means ‘God hears’.
R. Well Hannah must have been stoked to have a little baby.
D. She was so thankful that she wanted her son to grow up serving God and helping people in the temple.
R. Did he like to sing a lot?
D. I don’t know. Why?
R. We’ve got a TV named after him. ''Sam Sung''.
D. I’m thinking it’s time for you to go to lunch now.
R. Sam which?
