Wednesday’s Women

Esther

Esther

There are times in our lives where the only thing we can think to do is pray but the book of Esther reminds us what prayer can do for us.  Her story of love, faith, grace and courage is inspiring and has a happy ending.

Knowing all she could do was pray, she asked all those around her to fast and pray with her. Her prayers gave her strength, her faith gave her purpose and her courage saved her people.

When it feels like all you can do is pray, perhaps that’s just what you need to do first and the rest will come.

“Who knows whether you have come to the kingdom for such a time as this?”  Esther 4:14
