“Children are a gift from the LORD; they are a reward from him.” Psalm 127:3
Hannah is one of the great women of the Bible. In 1 Samuel 1:27-28 God answered her years-long prayers, and she gave birth to a son, Samuel. When Samuel was born, Hannah prayed these words: “I prayed for this child, and the Lord has granted me what I asked of him. So now I give him to the Lord. For his whole life he will be given over to the Lord.”
Hannah’s words explain the meaning behind child dedication: parents dedicating their child to God and committing themselves before God to do their best to raise their child to know and love God.
