Reflection: 1 Samuel 1-2


Here’s a litany inspired by Hannah’s prayer in 1 Samuel 2.  It was written by Katherine Hawker in 2003.

A prayer for life to fill the void
(inspired by Hannah’s prayer in 1 Samuel 2)

A prayer that reverberates throughout time
   for a child
   for a partner
   for a friend
A prayer that is at once lost
   and found
A grief exposed for the healing balm
A prayer that grows in the crevice of despair
   pushing past the boundaries
   bursting forth in new life
A prayer for life to fill the void
