Where does God call a child's name in the night three times?

Samuel thought it was the old priest, Eli, calling him.

Thanks for asking a question on 

The story you are looking for concerns the child Samuel and is to be found in 1 Samuel chapter 3. He knew it wasn't his father calling him because he was in service in the temple. Rather he thought that Eli, the priest, was calling him.
I hope you have found this helpful.
