Hannah, heartbroken that she has been unable to bear a child, prays fervently to God in the temple, promising him that if he gives her a son she will in turn give him back to God. She soon gives birth to Samuel who becomes one of the great prophets of the Old Testament. Her anguish as well as her hope that her prayers will be answered are apparent in her pleading expression.

This painting is from my “Women of the Old Testament’ series.
This is a series of three paintings of strong and courageous women from the Jewish Bible, otherwise known as the Old Testament. While each woman has a special place in the history and religion of the Jewish people, they also represent principles important to Christianity. The story of Queen Esther portrays Faith, Hannah embodies Hope, and Ruth and Naomi exemplify the concept of Charity.
