I don’t want anything to happen to any member of my family. Everyday I pray that their lives are secured in Christ with God. I’m sure you do this too. As a wife and mum, I want to grow old with my husband; and to be here for my children, grandchildren and by God’s grace my great grandchildren.
If the Jews were destroyed as Haman wanted, this meant that Esther would not see her family again and several lineages would have been eliminated completely. And more so, we many not have been able to read about Esther.
We cannot always be everywhere together. Our children will go to school. Our husbands would go to work and if we don’t work together, this means we would be going to different places. As times goes on, our children will go on to schools away from home, to college and to university, some away from home. Also, for some of us, our husbands may travel out of state to work or even go off-shore. All we can do at this time is to accompany them with our prayers.
Prayers accompanied Esther as she went to see the king against the normal. We also see God preserving Esther because if the king did not hold his scepter to her, she would have lost her life.
Now let us send our prayers to accompany our family and us.
