Again, it is God who calls His prophets and ministers, and Samuel listened. May we all listen as he did when the Lord speaks to us in the Scriptures.

Scripture: 1 Samuel 3:1-10

ESV Text: 1 Samuel 3:1-10


KJV Text:

(Alt. audio): Chapter: 3

     1 And the child Samuel ministered unto the LORD before Eli. And the word of the LORD was precious in those days; there was no open vision. 2 And it came to pass at that time, when Eli was laid down in his place, and his eyes began to wax dim, that he could not see; 3 And ere the lamp of God went out in the temple of the LORD, where the ark of God was, and Samuel was laid down to sleep; 4 That the LORD called Samuel: and he answered, Here am I. 5 And he ran unto Eli, and said, Here am I; for thou calledst me. And he said, I called not; lie down again. And he went and lay down. 6 And the LORD called yet again, Samuel. And Samuel arose and went to Eli, and said, Here am I; for thou didst call me. And he answered, I called not, my son; lie down again. 7 Now Samuel did not yet know the LORD, neither was the word of the LORD yet revealed unto him. 8 And the LORD called Samuel again the third time. And he arose and went to Eli, and said, Here am I; for thou didst call me. And Eli perceived that the LORD had called the child. 9 Therefore Eli said unto Samuel, Go, lie down: and it shall be, if he call thee, that thou shalt say, Speak, LORD; for thy servant heareth. So Samuel went and lay down in his place. 10 And the LORD came, and stood, and called as at other times, Samuel, Samuel. Then Samuel answered, Speak; for thy servant heareth.(KJV)


Hymn: TLH 293:
O Holy Spirit, Grant us Grace

Hymnary.org — Organ Audio

1. O Holy Spirit, grant us grace 
That we our Lord and Savior 
In faith and fervent love embrace 
And truly serve Him ever, 
So that when death is drawing nigh, 
We to His open wounds may fly 
And find in them salvation. 

2. Help us that we Thy saving Word 
In faithful hearts may treasure; 
Let e’er that Bread of Life afford 
New grace in richest measure. 
Yea, let us die to every sin, 
For heaven create us new within 
That fruits of faith may flourish. 

3. And when our earthly race is run, 
Death’s bitter hour impending, 
Then may Thy work in us begun 
Continue till life’s ending, 
Until we gladly may commend 
Our souls into our Savior’s hand 
To rest in peace eternal.
