If taken at face value, this text could be very problematic for a lot of people. We hear the story of Hannah. She cannot conceive, she cannot have children. She prays and prays and prays and then all of a sudden God gives her a child. How many stories have we heard of people who had an illness or maybe they too struggled with fertility or had some kind of thing in their life, and they prayed and prayed and prayed but their prayers weren’t answered.
