-They rose early in the morning and worshiped before the LORD; then they went back to their house at Ramah. And Elkanah knew Hannah his wife, and the LORD remembered her.-
1 Samuel 1:19
Do you have a special prayer? A prayer that you always say when you lift your heart to God. A prayer that make your eyes teary each time you talk about it to God. A prayer that for years you have been waiting that God will answer it.
I have... I've been praying for years, day by day, each night when I pour out my soul to the Lord. I pray with brokenhearted, with tears in my face and hands... and I remember the story of Hannah.
I probably just like her at the moment. She might be a lady who has no friends to be comfort to sharing her heart's grief. Even her husband.
"And Elkanah, her husband, said to her, “Hannah, why do you weep? And why do you not eat? And why is your heart sad? Am I not more to you than ten sons?”I can imagine Hannah's heart at the moment while Elkanah said this to her. Maybe she mumbled in her heart.
"Oh my beloved husband, you are more precious than anything in this world, but it just hurts my heart so deep when I see the women cuddling with their kids, and even Penina provokes me"The Lord is the Only One she poured out her soul, with tears, and brokenhearted. But at the end the Lord remembered her.
I was thinking that just maybe God using this prayer to draw me close to Him, and to know Him well more each day, I pray till God remember me...and I am hoping that someday I write my praises to the Lord here :).
and if not He is still good, and I will praise Him.
He will yet fill your mouth with laughter,
and your lips with shouting.
