Today I was reading in The Valley of Vision - an old book of Puritan prayers given to me by a dear friend. In it, is an appropriate prayer that we can pray for Hannah and Sarah today.

Oh Lord of Grace
The world is before Sarah and Hannah this day
and they are weak
but they look to you for strength.
If they venture forth alone they will stumble and fall
but on the Beloved's arms they are firm
as the eternal hills.
If left to the treachery of their hearts
they shall shame your name,
but if enlightened, guided, upheld by your Spirit,
they shall bring You glory.

Be thou, their arm to support,
their strength to stand,
their light to see,
their feet to run,
their shield to protect,
their sword to repel,
their sun to warm.
