Heavenly Father, thank You for the book of Esther and the wonderful way that You used her and Mordecai to prevent the annihilation of the Jewish nation during the time of the Persian empire. We rejoice to see how their faith and hope in You was rekindled, and that despite their many failings, You used them to forward Your redemptive plan. I pray that I would not allow the things of this world to undermine my faith in You and my hope in the soon return of the Lord Jesus. Help me to walk in spirit and truth and use me I pray in the unfolding of Your wonderful plan of redemption, for the glory of Your holy name AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You for the many lessons we can learn from the book of Esther and the important reminder that we should never compromise our faith, but stand fast in the evil day. Thank You that even when I fail, and find myself overwhelmed by the circumstances of life, Your grace is sufficient and can abound towards all Your people. Thank You that we have everything we need for life and godliness... so that we are enabled to abound unto every good work, for Your praise and glory. Use me I pray in the place where You have planted me, for Your holy name's sake, This I ask in Jesus' name, AMEN.
