Commentary :

In Verse 12 tulasidas tells that lord hanuman performs with great skill/zest all tasks assigned by Lord Shri Rama.

God-Guru's grace is much required if we are to progress in this spiritual life and to eradicate ignorance in us.

As known with ramakrishna paramahamsa's grace narendra has become swami vivekananda and has revived hinduism and can easily say that he is one of the most influential hindu saints in 20th century.

When he asked his master ramakrishna whether he as seen god,master said in return "Is there anyone who has not seen god?" which impressed vivekananda and be became a great disciple of bhagavan ramakrishna.

As guru ramana says,

As a lion seen in a dream by an elephant, awakens him; so the Guru, who is a sage, awakens the disciple from the dream of ignorance.The cause of all miseries is the impure vasana, the belief that holds the body to be ā€˜Iā€™.

The grace of the Guru is like an ocean. If you come with a cup, you will only receive a cupful.It is no use complaining of the niggardliness of the ocean; the bigger the vessel, the more you will be able to carry.It is entirely upto you.

In Verse 13 tulasidas describes that Lord Hanuman has brought Sanjivan (A herb that revives life) and restored Lakshman back to life which made Lord Rama happy.

Miracles do happen with guru's grace and we have seen many incidents in past regarding miracles.

In Mahabharata war lord krishna saved arjuna and other pandavas manytimes with his miracles else pandavas would have lost the war.
