When God’s people prayed and fasted along with Esther, she received remarkable courage and wisdom. Then she courageously placed her life into God’s hands by going uninvited into the king’s presence. Today’s narrative shows how she deftly handled a dangerous situation. This shows the power of God’s grace that any believer can obtain through focused and fervent prayer. Please open your Bible to Esther chapter five, and listen as Pastor Ray Viola begins his study of this chapter.
