Is there something that you have prayed for but have given up because you have seen no answer from God in a long time. As believers, God has given us the privilege to call on Him in time of need or trouble, to have faith in Him while we still pray and believing that He hears and will answer us. 

In Matthew 7:7,He said; Ask and you will receive, seek and you will find, knock and the door will be opened to you.

    God in His wise words did not just say this if He would not answer us. He is asking us to believe in Him. Casting our minds on Hannah. Hannah was always sad because she had no child. She was deeply distressed, but she looked out to the Lord. Hannah continued to pray to the Lord for a long time, pouring out her troubles,she never stopped believing in God. 

     In Hannah’s prayer, God is presented as the One who helps the weak, “The bows of the mighty are broken, she says, But the feeble bind on strength “(1 Samuel 2:4). 
She begins her prayer with, “my heart exults in the Lord, my strength is exalted in the Lord”.  Hannah recognized that her strength came from God and not from herself. She was not proud in her strength but rejoiced in God’s ability to make a weakling strong. 

    Here, her story gives us insight into God’s heart. God does not despise human desire, it also teaches us that God can use human weakness to accomplish great things. Just believe and He will answer.
