1 Sarah R = "See this story in 1 Samuel 1."
2 Sarah R = "24 After he was weaned, she took the boy with her, young as he was, along with a three-year-old bull, an ephah of flour and a skin of wine, and brought him to the house of the Lord at Shiloh. 25 When the bull had been sacrificed, they brought the boy to Eli, 26 and she said to him, “Pardon me, my lord. As surely as you live, I am the woman who stood here beside you praying to the Lord.27 I prayed for this child, and the Lord has granted me what I asked of him.28 So now I give him to the Lord. For his whole life he will be given over to theLord.” And he worshiped the Lord there. - 1 Samuel 1:24-28"
3 Sarah R = "The name "Samuel" means "heard by God." It was common for the Hebrew to give children names with meaning, and Samuel was named because his mother had prayed for a son in her barrenness and God had heard her prayer."
