Hannah

The mother of the prophet Samuel.

Background

Hannah was a childless woman who vowed that if God gave her a son she would give him to the Lord all the days of his life. In due course Samuel was born.  While he was still a child, Hannah kept her promise and brought Samuel to the priest Eli at the shrine at Shiloh to serve the Lord there.
