Chanah and our prayers


"Why do we recite nine blessings in the Musaf Amidah of Rosh haShanah?
"Rabbi Yitzchak of Carthagena explained: This is parallel to the nine times Chanah mentioned Gd's Name in her prayer (Samuel I 1), for it is noted that Chanah, as well as Sarah and Rachel, were answered on Rosh haShanah."
(Talmud, Berachot 29a)

Have a great day,
