• To show our appreciation to Him for granting us our heart desires.
Hannah worshipped God in prayer to show her appreciation to Him for giving her a baby boy, Samuel, after many years of being barren. Her prayer is found in 1 Samuel 2:2 and it has been fashioned into a popular worship song, part of which goes this way:
”There is none holy as the Lord
There is none beside Thee
Neither is there any rock Like Our God
There is none holy as the Lord”
For showing her appreciation by worshipping Him, God gave Hannah more children afterwards. So, from her account, we can safely conclude that it pays to worship God to convey our appreciation to Him for granting us our heart desires. No doubt, this will motivate Him to do more for us.
