1 Samuel 1:11-28 NIV

And she made a vow, saying, "Lord Almighty, if you will only look on your servant's misery and remember me, and not forget your servant but give her a son, then I will give him to the lord for all the days of his life, and no razor will ever be used on his head." As she kept on praying to the lord, Eli observed her mouth. Hannah was praying in her heart, and her lips were moving but her voice was not heard. Eli thought she was drunk and said to her, "How long are you going to stay drunk? Put away your wine." "Not so, my lord," Hannah replied, "I am a woman who is deeply troubled. I have not been drinking wine or beer; I was pouring out my soul to the lord. Do not take your servant for a wicked woman; I have been praying here out of my great anguish and grief." Eli answered, "Go in peace, and may the God of Israel grant you what you have asked of him." She said, "May your servant find favor in your eyes." Then she went her way and ate something, and her face was no longer downcast. Early the next morning they arose and worshiped before the lord and then went back to their home at Ramah. Elkanah made love to his wife Hannah, and the lord remembered her. So in the course of time Hannah became pregnant and gave birth to a son. She named him Samuel, saying, "Because I asked the lord for him." When her husband Elkanah went up with all his family to offer the annual sacrifice to the lord and to fulfill his vow, Hannah did not go. She said to her husband, "After the boy is weaned, I will take him and present him before the lord, and he will live there always." "Do what seems best to you," her husband Elkanah told her. "Stay here until you have weaned him; only may the lord make good his word." So the woman stayed at home and nursed her son until she had weaned him. After he was weaned, she took the boy with her, young as he was, along with a three-year-old bull, an ephah of flour and a skin of wine, and brought him to the house of the lord at Shiloh. When the bull had been sacrificed, they brought the boy to Eli, and she said to him, "Pardon me, my lord. As surely as you live, I am the woman who stood here beside you praying to the lord. I prayed for this child, and the lord has granted me what I asked of him. So now I give him to the lord. For his whole life he will be given over to the lord." And he worshiped the lord there.

1 Samuel 2:18-21 NIV

But Samuel was ministering before the lord—a boy wearing a linen ephod. Each year his mother made him a little robe and took it to him when she went up with her husband to offer the annual sacrifice. Eli would bless Elkanah and his wife, saying, "May the lord give you children by this woman to take the place of the one she prayed for and gave to the lord." Then they would go home. And the lord was gracious to Hannah; she gave birth to three sons and two daughters. Meanwhile, the boy Samuel grew up in the presence of the lord.

1 Samuel 2:26
1 Samuel 2:26 NIV

And the boy Samuel continued to grow in stature and in favor with the lord and with people.

1 Samuel 3:1-4 NIV

The boy Samuel ministered before the lord under Eli. In those days the word of the lord was rare; there were not many visions. One night Eli, whose eyes were becoming so weak that he could barely see, was lying down in his usual place. The lamp of God had not yet gone out, and Samuel was lying down in the house of the lord, where the ark of God was. Then the lord called Samuel. Samuel answered, "Here I am."
