Every once in a while we could all use a little encouragement. I was reading about Hannah in 1 Samuel 1 the other day. She, along with Peninnah, was married to Elkanah. Peninnah had children, but Hannah had none. Year after year Peninnah would provoke Hannah until she would cry and would not eat. She was obviously very hurt because she had no children and her rival constantly pushed those buttons for a reaction.
One year Hannah was praying and Eli the priest saw her. She was deep in prayer in her heart. As she prayed her lips moved, but there was no sound coming out. Eli thought she was drunk and went over to rebuke her.
