As you think about all that Hannah went through over many years as described in I Samuel 1, (that other wife constantly irritating her, making her feel worthless, causing her to half eat, and making her cry), how in the world did Hannah avoid a breakdown?
Why didn't Hannah throw up her hands and quit?
Hannah's prayer in I Samuel 2:1-10, gives several insights into how to reach your breakthrough versus a breakdown.
Here are two insights that we shared in the sermon in 3/6/16:
Prayer kept Hannah's heart open for healing.

Christian's as you face ongoing personal attacks, Hannah's story, and her response to evil can help you.
This prayer can also help:
Dear Lord, I thank you for saving me from a breakdown. Lord I see vividly
how Hannah's prayer life was central to her overcoming breakdown conditions,
and reaching her breakthrough living. Lord, I see You as the True God, and
The Just Judge, Who turns the tables in life because You are always in
control. Lord, I trust You afresh with every aspect of my life. Guide me
each step through the landmines of a breakdown, as I enjoy Your supernatural
heart treatment program, and as I connect with You through breakthrough
prayer, and enjoy breakthrough living. I love You deeply. I pray these
things in the name of Jesus, Amen.
