(1 Samuel 1:11 NIV).
She is an inspiring woman and one women can identify with.
Not only was she in a polygamous marriage, but she was barren.
She lived with a rival wife, who despised her and showed off because she had children.
Fortunately for Hannah, her husband loved her.
Like Hannah, there are many women who desperately want to have children, but are unable to.
Hannah used her faith to pray until God answered her prayers.
Her life was miserable because she had a deep longing to have a child.
In return, she made a promise to dedicate her child to be used of God.
God heard her prayers and granted her wish.
Her son Samuel became one of the greatest prophets in the bible.
