(E) Esther – Courage for a Time Such As This

Lindsey, may you have the courage of Esther, for you too are here for a time such as this. May God grant you the grace to act courageously and wisely. God knows your weakness, your strength and your potential. Have faith in God and in his power, especially when he asks hard things of you.

Heavenly Father, good morning! Thank you for the squirrels playing tag in our back yard. Thank you for the birds perched in our trees. Thank you for all your wonderful creation. And thank you for the book of Esther which provides a woman in the Bible for the letter E:

Then Mordecai commanded to answer Esther, Think not with thyself that thou shalt escape in the king’s house, more than all the Jews. For if thou altogether holdest thy peace at this time,then shall there enlargement and deliverance arise to the Jews from another place; but thou and thy father’s house shall be destroyed: and who knoweth whether thou art come to the kingdom for such a time as this? (Esther 4:13-14)

Lord, here I am. I came to sit with you. To sit and talk. And to pray for your daughter Lindsey, who you love. I pray now for you Lindsey. I pray that God would let you know what he has planned for you, as you may be here for such a time as this. I pray that God will grant you extra courage as well as extra wisdom that you will need on your journey. I pray that God would increase your faith in him and in his power, especially when things get hard for you. And we can give God all the glory. The glory is all his. I pray this in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen

Perhaps you are here for such a time as this!

Good Morning Heavenly Father! Thank you for my breath and my life. Thank you for continuing to be my provider and protector, my instructor and my guide. Thank you for the scripture that is for your daughter Lindsey. I pray this scripture over her this day:

For if thou altogether holdest thy peace at this time, then shall there enlargement and deliverance arise to the Jews from another place; but thou and thy father’s house shall be destroyed: and who knoweth whether thou art come to the kingdom for such a time as this? Then Esther bade them return Mordecai this answer, Go, gather together all the Jews that are present in Shushan, and fast ye for me, and neither eat nor drink three days, night or day: I also and my maidens will fast likewise; and so will I go in unto the king, which is not according to the law: and if I perish, I perish. (Esther 4:14-16)

Lord, yesterdays tears are gone, and now I come before you to ask that you would speak to Lindsey if you have helped her achieve her international status and position for such a time as this. Who knows, perhaps she has come to your kingdom for such a time as this! I ask that you be her guide, that you carefully and clearly show her the way she should go … and give her the courage to go that way.  Remind her that you are at her side each and every step of the way. Let her see the path as you see it Lord. And we will give you the glory. All the glory is yours Lord. I pray this all in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen. (more…)
