This Bible story podcast for kids tells the story of Hannah and God. We referenced the following Biblical passages: 1 Samuel 1 and 2: 1-11. Hey-O Kids Curriculum’s primary goal with the Stories of the Bible animation is to tell the stories from God’s word accurately and in a way that is engaging to children of all ages.

This is Hannah. Hannah was married to a man named Elkanah, but they were not able to have any children. This made Hannah sad. 

Every year Hannah and Elkanah would go to the House of the Lord at Shiloh to pray to God and offer sacrifices. Hannah would cry out and pray to the Lord. She told God that if he gave her a son, she would give it back to him and that her son would serve God all the days of his life. 

Hannah was so upset that one of the priests, Eli thought that there was something off about her. But Hannah told him that she had been praying because she had a broken heart.

So Eli told her, “May the God of Israel grant the request you’ve made.” And then Hannah was no longer sad. 

In due time, Hannah became pregnant and gave birth to a son. She named him Samuel for she said, “I asked the Lord for him.” 

Hannah did as she said she would and once Samuel was a little older, she took him to the temple. Hannah prayed and gave thanks to God. And Samuel grew up in the temple serving the Lord.
