Esther 8 to 10 Prayer Unleashes God’s Power
Today we are one click away from knowing what is happening around the globe. Global governments and people seek to be in control of all legislation and people’s decisions. But in Esther’s time, Persia was a “nation” that stretched from India to Ethiopia where only horse riders brought the news. They heard that there was a new decree to exterminate Jews. Many times we only get news second or third hand and don’t know the particulars. Yet our God is aware and He is “on our side.”
God has placed His chosen officials in place. Pray for them to be “filled with the knowledge of His will in all spiritual wisdom and understanding.” [Col. 1:9] Pray for our leaders, “and all who are in authority, that we may lead a peaceful and quiet life in all godliness and dignity.” [1Ti 2:2]
Esther took her plea to the king and revealed the plan to rid Persia of the Jews by the hand of wicked Haman who hated God’s people. God hears the pleas of His children and raises up and puts down those who are filled with hatred of His chosen ones. We must pray for God’s power to be unleashed.
How are you praying for your governing officials today?
