Hannah Prays story and craft for young children. A Bible Story all about talking to God and how God hears us when we talk to him.
The Story is from 1 Samuel 1:1-20
Hannah Prays – Story
Bible Truth for Toddlers – God hears us when we talk to him
In the story bag we have Hannah and baby Samuel.
‘Are you ready to say hello to the person in our story? Her name is Hannah. ‘Hello Hannah’. (Take Hannah from the story bag)
Hannah lived a long time ago with her husband. She had nice clothes, and a lovely home but she was very, very sad.
Hannah didn’t have any children and this made her very sad.
What could she do?
No one seemed to care about how she felt.
Who could she talk to?
Hannah decided to talk to God. Sometimes we call that praying. She told him how sad she was. She told God how much she wanted to have a baby. She told God all about how she felt.
God always cares about how we feel. He is always able to listen to us when we talk to him. Even though we can’t see God he is there – he is real, and he is king and good and powerful.
When Hannah had told God all about everything she felt much better.
Now God doesn’t always give us exactly what we ask him for but he heard Hannah’s prayer and she had a baby! (Take Samuel from the story bag) Let’s quietly whisper, ‘hello Samuel’ – because he’s sleeping!
Hannah called her baby Samuel. She loved him very much.
Let’s say bye, bye to Hannah and Samuel. (Place them back in the story bag)
Hannah and baby Samuel – Craft Idea
We have a picture of Hannah to decorate and baby Samuel to add. If you can, have some Skin Coloured Crayons for the children to use – these are really good for all crafts that include pictures of people.

There is another Bible Story Idea about Samuel here. It’s all about Samuel hearing God’s voice and how God speaks to us today. You could tell these stories on consecutive weeks to teach that we can talk to God and God talks to us.
