1 Samuel 1.24-28


‘This is the child I prayed for, and the Lord granted me what I asked him. Now I make him over to the Lord for the whole of his life.’


Lord from before his birth

you called Samuel to be a prophet,

just as you called Mary to be mother of Christ.

You know each of us from before our conception;

grant us grace to fulfil our calling in every detail,

no matter how small.
