“A Prayer For God’s Favor”

March 19, 2021

Father, so many principles we learn from Scripture are evidenced in the rescue of Your people during the reign of Queen Esther. We see the miraculous consequences of Esther’s obedience to Your plan for her life and that of her people.  We see how “pride goes before the fall” in the life of proud Haman, whose deception and manipulation led to his own humiliating demise. We see the love and oversight of Esther through the life of Mordecai as he lovingly looked after her, much like we are called to look after the widows and orphans. We especially see Your favor upon Your chosen people as You brought about deliverance to those who would otherwise be executed. Just as You raised up Esther to intercede for her people, You sent Jesus to intercede for us, by paying the price for our sins so that we might be delivered and receive the crown of life for all eternity. Thank You for Your mercies that endure for all time. Amen.
