“And they were all amazed, so that they questioned among themselves, saying, ‘What is this? A new teaching! With authority, he commands even the unclean spirits, and they obey him.” (Mark 1:27)

Today we continue the story of Hannah, the first wife of Elkanah. Year after year, Hannah would cry her heart out because of the constant provocation she received from her rival Peninnah. One day, she decided her tears weren’t working and she needed to do something more. She decided to carry her burdens to God in prayer. The prayer of Hannah wasn’t just any type of prayer, it is one that contains a lot of lessons for us.
