Hannah’s Prayer

Prayer Of Hannah

“And [Hannah] was in bitterness of soul, and prayed unto the Lord, and wept sore.

“And she vowed a vow, and said, O Lord of hosts, if thou wilt indeed look on the affliction of thine handmaid, and remember me, and not forget thine handmaid, but wilt give unto thine handmaid a man child, then I will give him unto the Lord all the days of his life.”

Prayer of Hannah, the Mother of Samuel the Prophet, by Vasili Petrovich Vereshchagin, State Gallery of Art, Perm, Russia; HIP / Art Resource, New York
