Hannah was a woman in need. She and her husband were unable to have children for a long time, and this made Hannah very sad. Each year the family traveled to worship in Shiloh, and every year she faced the pilgrimage with dread and great sorrow. She wept and prayed for a child, and as she prayed her lips moved without sound. Eli, the priest in Shiloh thought she was drunk, but she explained she was extremely sad. Eli blessed her and told her she would have a son, in God's time. Hannah wasn't sad anymore because she knew God would give her heart's desire in His perfect time. Hannah's story can be found in 1 Samuel 1-2, 18-26.Subscribe to Read!
