The 1122 Motherhood Principle

1 Samuel 1:11 Then she made a vow and said, “O LORD of hosts, if You will indeed look on the affliction of Your maidservant and remember me, and not forget Your maidservant, but will give Your maidservant a male child, then I will give him to the LORD all the days of his life, and no razor shall come upon his head.”

1 Samuel 1:22 But Hannah did not go up, for she said to her husband, “Not until the child is weaned; then I will take him, that he may appear before the LORD and remain there forever.”

Verse 11 demonstrates Hannah’s desire for Samuel and her devotion to the Lord.

Verse 22 demonstrates Hannah’s dedication to Samuel and her devotion to the Lord

Desire, Devotion, and Dedication are the three words that make up the core of what I am calling the 1122 Principle of Motherhood. It comes from this two verses in 1 Samuel. It also speaks of all that transpires in a woman’s life and a child life’s between the time the child is conceived until the child is released from the home. In Samuel’s case, it was only three short years. In most cases, it is the period of time from birth until marriage or moving away from home to pursue a career.

Let’s think about these three words. First let’s look at:

-God placed a special nurturing love within the heart of women toward little ones.
-The yearning for a child can be very deep and intense as it was with Hannah
-Stop and pray for all women who desire a child and have been unable to have one
-Pray blessing upon those who have stepped forward to adopt a child (this also reflects God’s heart who has adopted us)

-Hannah had a deep devotion to the Lord
-She was in the house of the Lord praying
-She was overwhelmed with emotion
-She knew God could grant her the longing of her heart
-She was a worshipping woman
-Pause and pray blessing over all mothers for their devotion to the Lord and its effect upon their children. Honor them.

-Hannah vowed early on to give her child to the Lord
-She was faithful to her promise to give him to the Lord
-She did all she could do to prepare Samuel to live for the Lord
-She knew God had a special purpose for him
-A mother sacrifices like no one else selflessly in order to see their children grow and succeed.
-Pause and pray thanking God for the sacrifices mothers have made for their families.
-Pray blessing over all children present and remember to pray for those who are away from the Lord.

Conclusion– If you are a person who has a mother that desires you, is devoted to the Lord, and has dedicated her life to release you to the purposes of God, you are blessed indeed.

(Remember to provide encouragement and ministry to those who have been abandoned by their mothers, have conflict with their mothers, or have lost their mothers through death).
