In today’s first reading 1 Samuel 1:9–20 we read about how distraught Hannah was on being barren. And how she was transformed through her deep heartfelt prayer to God.( 1 Sam 1:13 Hannah was speaking in her heart; only her lips moved, and her voice was not heard) When she left the doorpost of the temple she was no longer sad as she had lifted her burdens up to the Lord. She trusted in Him to answer Her prayer and He did.
God answers all our prayers even if the answer is sometimes no. When we fully place our trust in Him, His grace will come upon us and we will experience His peace and love. Prayer leads us closer to God and to the sacraments whereby we experience Him not emotionally or vicariously but by His real presence.
Praise Be To God! Alleluia!
