The story of Hannah is a beautiful one for both men and women alike.
She had been unable to conceive a child, resulting in her feeling deeply troubled with “great anguish and grief.” But, she knew where to go, and on Whom she could call.
She went before the Lord, and poured out her heart and soul to Him. Even though Eli, the priest, misunderstood her condition and situation, she continued in the expression of her inner most being to the Lord.
“‘I am a woman who is deeply troubled… I was pouring out my soul to the Lord… I have been praying here out of my great anguish and grief.’
Then she went her way and ate something, and her face was no longer downcast.”
( 1 Samuel 1:15-18 )
Having finished her intimate time in prayer, she went on with her daily life. After her soul-pouring prayer, her countenance was brightened and her depression was lifted.
Oh, and she and her husband soon conceived a child. His name was Samuel, and he became one of the outstanding men of God whose life and ministry are recorded in scripture.
We are blessed today and Hannah was blessed back then because she engaged in Soul-Pouring Prayer.
What kind of blessings will be poured out upon your life… if you will pray like Hannah? What kind of blessings will be poured from Heaven upon the people around you… if you will pray like Hannah?
See you at the altar… of Soul-Pouring Prayer.
