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. I 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 abounds towards all Your people. Thank You that I have everything I need for life and godliness, so that I am 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.
Loving Heavenly Father, thank You that by grace we are saved and by grace, our sins are remembered no more. Thank You, that by grace we are established in the faith and only by grace are we enabled to carry out the good works You have prepared for us to do. Forgive me for the times I have failed to listen to Your voice and walk in Your ways, and keep me from promoting any worthy works I may have done, for without You I can do nothing. Keep me low at the cross and humble before You, and I pray in Jesus' name, that all I am and all I do would be for His glory and His alone, AMEN.
