Hannah and Samuel 1

I enjoy listening to audio readings of the Bible on my iPad/iPhone Bible app, often several chapters at a time.

Recently I was listening to the moving story of the young woman, Hannah, distraught over not being able to conceive a child.

I felt Hannah’s anguish as she silently poured out her heart to God. In my mind’s eye I watched Hannah return home from praying, uplifted in spirit and at peace. Later she conceived and gave birth to the boy Samuel, who became one of the greatest prophets of Israel.
