Reshaping Her Plea

quinzaines She dreads the trips to Shiloh. Does God even hear? Does He care?” The man cares for her deeply. “Is not my love more than ten sons?” Her rival pokes injury. “Woman, what is wrong, arms still bare?” With zeal she reshapes her plea. Can God sense hidden intentions? The priest faults her great distress, “Must you come here drunk with your prayer?” *** Hannah’s praise song is vic’try. Dare we to pray it and believe? First baby is relinquished. Did a vow cause her faith to grow? This child was destined to win. Would he have triumphed at her knee? God gave her five more children Can you see them all at Shiloh? Hannah restructured her prayers. What does Jehovah want from me? This change made all the diff’rence. What is God holding in escrow? written March 22, 2013
