“Prayers for Hannah”
“For this child I have prayed, and the Lord hath given me my petition which I asked of Him.”
I Samuel 1:27
Though Hannah was only with us for 3 short months, she touched the hearts and lives of thousands of people, people who met her only through pictures and updates from her loving and devoted parents on a “Prayer Page”. Prayers and messages poured in daily, by the hundreds, to encourage her family. “Though she be little but she is fierce.” Hannah will be greatly missed by all.
