The boon and bounty awaiting the barren
Incredible, indescribable, unspeakable
But requiring calm, trust in the face of storm
Requiring passionate, importunate prayer.
Abraham and Sarah were in this difficult place
But at the set time they got laughter- Isaac
Isaac and Rebekah were in this stony place
Isaac prayed with all his heart and twins came.
Jacob was in this desert place with Rachel
He trusted God and Joseph- fruitful bow- came.
Hannah was in the valley of valleys and agonised
God answered her prayer by giving her Samuel.
Her horn was exalted as she smiled at her enemies.
Manoah and his wife were quarantined in this prison
But God had mercy on them and gave them Samson.
Zachariah and Elizabeth were marooned in this land
God turned the table and gave them John the Baptist.
