What does 1 Samuel 1:12 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
1 Samuel 1:12

And it came to pass, as she continued praying before the Lord,

that Eli marked her mouth;
observed the motion of her lips, and no doubt her distorted countenance, and uplifted eyes and hands, but chiefly the former; not knowing what the woman was at, and what could be the meaning of such motions.
