Hello and welcome to this year’s beautiful wife prayer challenge. It is our seventh edition. Wow!!! God has indeed been good to us. Don’t you think so?
This year, while I thought about what would be our theme, I got quite a lot; but I went back to pray about it, telling God I want to only do what He wants and that was when this theme came. “For my people.”
Our key verses would be from the book of Esther. I am sure we all know the story of Esther and how she prayerfully saved her people from destruction at the hand of Haman.
Then Esther told them to reply to Mordecai, “Go, gather all the Jews that are present in Susa, and observe a fast for me; do not eat or drink for three days, night or day. I and my maids also will fast in the same way. Then I will go in to [see] the king [without being summoned], which is against the law; and if I perish, I perish.”Esther 3:15-16 AMP
Queen Esther replied, “If I have found favor with the king, and if it pleases the king to grant my request, I ask that my life and the lives of my people will be spared.Esther 7:3 NLT
It hit differently as I read these verses and it stirred up a fire within me to pray for my people. For the purpose of this challenge, this is going to be limited to our immediate family.
Over the seven days starting 5th and ending 11th, I’ll want to encourage you to fast if you can. Not compulsory but recommended.
