1 Samuel 1:27
I prayed for this boy, and since the Lord gave me what I asked Him for,
I am a laughingstock to my friends,
by calling on God, who answers me.

My prayer came to You,
to Your holy temple.
You called out in distress, and I rescued you;
I answered you from the thundercloud.
I tested you at the waters of Meribah.Selah
So You handed them over to their enemies,
who oppressed them.
In their time of distress, they cried out to You,
and You heard from heaven.
In Your abundant compassion
You gave them deliverers, who rescued them
from the power of their enemies.
However, God has listened;
He has paid attention to the sound of my prayer.
This poor man cried, and the Lord heard him
and saved him from all his troubles.
In my alarm I had said,
“I am cut off from Your sight.”
But You heard the sound of my pleading
when I cried to You for help.
Because He has turned His ear to me,
I will call out to Him as long as I live.
