“And who knows, you may have been chosen queen for such a time as this” (Esther 4:14 NCV).
A wonderful illustration of boldness in prayer is in the story of Esther. Though her language and culture are an atlas apart from ours, she can tell you about the power of prayer to a king. Her request was to her husband, the king. Her prayer was for the delivery of her people. And because she entered the throne room, because she opened her heart to the king, he changed his plans and millions of people were saved.
Like Esther, we have been given a place in the palace. Like Esther, we have royal robes; we are dressed in righteousness. Like Esther, we have the privilege of making our request. And when we pray for God’s kingdom to come, it comes!
