10  The foes of Hashem shall be shattered; He will thunder against them in the heavens. Hashem will judge the ends of the earth. He will give power to His king, And triumph to His anointed one.

 2:10   He will give power to His king, and triumph to His anointed one

Chana is a prophetess, and so she prays not only for herself, but for the entire nation of Israel.  While thanking Hashem for her own child, she also prays for two separate leaders who will shape the nation: “His king” and “His anointed one.”  The famed commentator Radak notes that Chana knew that her son would be responsible for establishing the monarchy over the people of Israel.  Thus, “His king” refers to Shaul, who would be the only king from his tribe of Binyamin, and “His anointed one” refers to David, from the tribe of Yehuda, who would establish the eternal monarchy that would span the generations. Chana is thus a role model, teaching us to look beyond our individual needs when we pray, and also to long for the reestablishment of the kingdom of David at the hands of his descendant, the Mashiach.

    The adversaries of the Lord will be broken to pieces, He will thunder against them in the Heavens, The Lord will judge the ends of the earth, And He will give strength to His King, And will exalt the Horn (strength) of His anointed.

    Praying beyond our reach is really a God given gift …..for most often I experience this while praying.The Holy Spirit impresses in my spirit what to pray for or when chatting with friends,colleagues or family members and I can feel the nudge or this unction prompting me that this is a prayer point. After praying we feel this beautiful calmness as peace envelopes our lives. Praise the Lord.
