Also lately my husband and myself have been wanting a child and after careful studies and going back and forth to doctors, I sought God and he spoke to me showed me when woman in the Bible were bearen they laid on their faces and prayed like Hannah for instance. Hannah was married to a man named Elkanah who dearly loved her but he also had another wife. The other wife, Pininnah, had children but not Hannah - "the Lord had closed her womb." (1 Samuel 1:5) All of Hannah's thoughts centered on being childless and her husband could not comfort her. She endured great provocation and ridicule from Pininnah for her barrenness and she continually sought the Lord to remove her reproach and give her a male child.
One year during a trip Hannah had a divine appointment with her God. She entered into the Lord's tabernacle to pray once again for her deepest need.
"And she was in bitterness of soul, and prayed to the Lord and wept in anguish. Then she made a vow and said, 'O Lord of hosts, if You will indeed look on the affliction of Your maidservant and remember me, and not forget Your maidservant, but will give Your maidservant a male child, then I will give him to the Lord all the days of his life, and no razor shall come upon his head" (1 Samuel 1:10-11).
Long story short Eli the priest saw Hannah praying and thought the was drunk, she explained her story, and Eli said "Go in peace, and the God of Israel grant your petition which you have asked of Him." (I Samuel 1:17). Well when I sought the Lord about me, I asked him why must woman go through so much to conceive, their is so many medicines one must take and $5000.00 injections, have surgery. I laid on my face and trusted God and said "Lord if you dont do it for me, do it for someone else" my unselfish prayers were sent to any other woman who is barren or struggling trying to conceive. My prayer is that woman would not have to struggle in that area and become lab mice doing all kinds of test and surgary. Stand in prayer with me and let's see the manifestaton of God's hand move. I truly Thank you for reading my blog and I love sharing with my followers God Bless you all.
