Then Esther sent this reply to Mordecai: “Go, gather together all the Jews who are in Susa, And fast for me. Do not eat or drink for three days, night or day. I and my maids will fast as you do. When this is done, I will go to the king, even though it is against the law. And if I perish, I perish.” So Mordecai went away and carried out all of Esther’s instructions. Esther 4:15-17

Observations
1. When faced with difficulty, turn to other believers for encouragement and prayer.
2. Pray as if all depends on God and act as if all depends on you.
3. Decide to do what God wants, and trust him for the outcome.

Prayer
Father, I thank you for those who pray for me and encourage me. I thank you for those who have sown good things into my life. I ask that you will bless them and uplift them today. Help me to carry out your will and fulfill your specific plans. Help me to shine where you have placed me. Help me to fulfill your destiny and become all you intended. May I make a difference in someone’s life today. Amen! Amen! Amen!
