Hannah Prayed

This is Hannah.

Hannah’s rival, Peninnah, taunts her because she can’t have a child.

Hannah doesn’t share the latest taunt or how it makes her feel.

Hannah pulls herself together, slips away quietly, and prays.

Hannah is a real woman.

Be like Hannah.

1 Samuel 1:9, “So Hannah ate. Then she pulled herself together, slipped away quietly, and entered the sanctuary.” The Message

Hannah prayed until she was confident in God’s answer.

1 Samuel 1:18, ” ‘Think well of me – and pray for me!’ she said, and went her way. Then she ate heartily, her face radiant.” The Message

When God answered Hannah’s prayer, she gives Him credit.

1 Samuel 2:1, “Hannah prayed: I’m bursting with God-news! I’m walking on air. I’m laughing at my rivals. I’m dancing my salvation.” The Message

Hannah knows God is the only one to help.

1 Samuel 2:30, “…I honor those who honor Me….” The Message
