The favour of Esther

A few nights ago, I had dream which inspired me to write this blog. In this dream, I was in a chaotic environment whereby women were oppressed, abducted, and held captive for no reason. The Lord was next to me; instructing and guiding me about how to prevent getting caught by the “bad guys”. He was my protector, and I watched other women get caught and taken away. Then He disappeared, and I was spotted and taken away. I was taken into a camp and met other women who informed me about the conditions they had been living in and that I would not be released or ever see my family again. The head of the notorious group of abductors walked towards me in an intimidating way. As he conversed with me, it ended up that we had mutual friends and the conversation flowed positively. The outcome was that he told the guards to release me and I was free to leave. I had favour.

After pondering over the dream, the Holy Spirit spoke to my heart and the favour of Esther came to my heart. Esther is one of the most influential women stated in the bible (read the book of Esther). She was a Jew; an unlikely candidate that rose from an orphan to a queen and a heroine of an entire nation. She was raised by her cousin, Mordecai, who helped position her into her destiny. Esther was a woman of obedience, humility, faith and courage. She knew who she was in God, she knew her purpose and knew what the power of God was able to do. God uses the story of Esther to show us how He is able to change a dreadful story into a glorious ending. The favour of God ensured that an orphan was ordained to be a queen to save the Jews from eradication (Esther 3:13 “Dispatches were sent by couriers to all the king’s provinces with the order to destroy, kill and annihilate all the Jews—young and old, women and children—on a single day, the thirteenth day of the twelfth month, the month of Adar, and to plunder their goods”). Esther was not dismayed nor discouraged about the current situation and was willing to sacrifice her life for what she believed God was able to do (Esther 4:16-“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 attendants 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”).

Esther obtained supernatural favour from her husband (king Ahasuerus)- the most influential person in the land, which helped her to accomplish her purpose (Esther 7:2 “On this second occasion, while they were drinking wine, the king again said to Esther, “Tell me what you want, Queen Esther. What is your request? I will give it to you, even if it is half the kingdom!”). Esther was selfless and her request for the Jews to be spared was granted. God is able to positon us in places of favour, allow us to have favour with individuals and honour us for things we have not worked for (Psalm 37:4 “Take delight in the LORD and he will give you the desires of your heart”). The beauty of the story of Esther is that God did not only favour Esther and saved the Jews; He also favoured her cousin (Esther 8:1-2” On that day King Ahasuerus gave the house of Haman, the enemy of the Jews, to Queen Esther; and Mordecai came before the king, for Esther had disclosed what he was to her. 2 The king took off his signet ring which he had taken away from Haman, and gave it to Mordecai. And Esther set Mordecai over the house of Haman”). It shows that if we follow God’s purpose for our life, He also remembers our desires and blesses us beyond our human understanding (Luke 12:31 “But rather seek ye the kingdom of God; and all these things shall be added unto you”). Even those who do not wish us well will see the favour of the Lord flourish over our lives (Esther 8:5-7”and said, “If it pleases the king, and if I have found favour in his sight and the thing seems right to the king and I am pleasing in his eyes, let it be written to revoke the letters devised by Haman, the son of Hammedatha the Agagite, which he wrote to annihilate the Jews who are in all the king’s provinces. For how can I endure to see the evil that will come to my people? Or how can I endure to see the destruction of my countrymen? Then King Ahasuerus said to Queen Esther and Mordecai the Jew, “Indeed, I have given Esther the house of Haman, and they have hanged him on the gallows because he tried to lay his hand on the Jews”).

We all have situations whereby we need Gods divine intervention and God’s favour. It could be for a job interview,promotion, business deal, with a loved one, exams etc. My prayer for you today is that the favour of Esther will manifest in what your heart desires- all to the glory of God.

The favour of Esther- prayer

Dear heavenly Father,

I thank you for today and for all you have given me. I come before you as a sinner and ask for you to forgive me for all the sins I have committed- knowingly or unknowingly. Thank you for not giving up on me and for still counting me as worthy. I come before you because of (state the situation). I pray for the favour of Esther to manifest into this situation. Lord, I acknowledge that I cannot do anything without you and that all I have is because of your mercy (John 15:5 “I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing”). I pray Lord for your favour that things will work out for my good and will be effortless. I pray that you will go before me and give me favour with (state the situation). I also pray for unexpected favour in areas which I least expect it. I pray that you will bring the right people into my life that will help me with (state the situation). I pray that during this time, you will give me the faith, courage, humility and obedience of Esther. Help me to fully surrender this situation to you knowing that you are in control. I pray that through your favour you will take me to levels that I cannot obtain in my own strength (Proverbs 18:16 “A man’s gift makes room for him And brings him before great men”).AMEN

The favour of Esther- spouse/partner

Dear Lord, I thank you for my spouse, for their lives and for bringing them into my life. I bring my spouse before you Lord and pray that you will bless them with the favour of Esther. I pray for favour to manifest at their workplace, in their family, with friends and all aspects of their lives. I pray that unexpected favour will meet them today. I pray for myself, that I will have supernatural favour with my spouse. I pray that as Esther had favour with the king, I shall also reap the same favour. I pray that whatever petition I bring to my spouse that is pleasing unto to, I will have favour with. I pray that my spouse will put me first and the matter of our household. I pray that my spouse will not be selfish but remember my needs and happiness. I pray that my spouse will think about me in the area of finance. I pray that as I speak to my spouse about (state the situation) I will have favour with him. May the outcome of my situation be positive, all to Your glory also pray for the favour of Esther with my spouses’ family and friends (Isaiah 28:29 “All this also comes from the Lord Almighty, whose plan is wonderful, whose wisdom is magnificent).

The favour of Esther- workplace/ financial breakthrough

Dear Lord,

I thank you for today, I thank you for my job, for provision and for financial blessings (Proverbs 10:22 “The blessing of the LORD makes a person rich, and he adds no sorrow with it“). I thank you that you have gone before me and made my path prosperous. I thank you for levelling any mountain that was ahead of me. Today, I believe I am blessed and highly favour. I pray into the favour of Esther, that I will be favoured at work. I will have favour with my colleagues and with my manager. I pray for a promotion and a financial increase, knowing that all things are possible through Christ Jesus. I thank you because the works of my hands are blessed.  I also pray for my family members that you will show them favour in all aspects of their lives, as you did with Mordecai and Esther. I pray that even in my area of work, that I will be a blessing. I pray for all those at my work place, that whatever circumstance is troubling them, that you will turn this situation around for them. Use me as your vessel in the workplace to show your unconditional love. I also pray that you will give me wisdom on how to increase my finances (“James 1:5 If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you”). I am believing you for a financial increase and thank you for this in advance (Ephesians 3:20 “Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us”). Amen

The purity of a Christian woman- prayers

Help Meet

Father, I come before you because of my desire for marriage. I believe as your daughter it is my portion to enjoy the blessing of holy matrimony (Matthew 21:22 “And all things whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive”. I understand it is by Your grace that I will receive this blessing and not my works. I pray that You will first teach me how to be content with You Father and make You the centre of my life. I know that before my earthly husband You are my husband Lord (Isaiah 54:5 “For your Maker is your husband, the LORD of hosts is his name; and the Holy One of Israel is your Redeemer,  the God of the whole earth he is called”).I surrender myself and my marriage unto you and have faith that the plans that you have for me are good (Romans 8:28– “And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to His purpose”).

Lord, as it took a year to prepare Queen Esther, I pray that in this waiting period that You will prepare me to be a wife and mother. I pray that You will reveal my marriage purpose in Your kingdom. I pray Lord that You will teach me to have the characteristics to build my husband, home and children unto Your foundation (Ephesians 4:2 “Be always humble, gentle and patient. Show your love by being tolerant with one another”). Make me a spiritual adviser to my husband and children. Teach me how to fulfill my earthly purpose and how to be a blessing to others. I pray that you will teach me your love and help me to transfer this unto my household (Proverbs 31:26 “She opens her mouth with wisdom, and the teaching of kindness is on her tongue”). I pray that You will teach me to respect my husband and his leadership (Ephesians 5:22-24 “Wives, submit to your husbands as to the Lord. For the husband is the head of the wife as Christ is the head of the church, his body, of which he is the Saviour. Now as the church submits to Christ, so also wives should submit to their husbands in everything”.

Teach me how to be submissive just like Sarah submitted to Abraham (1 Peter 3:6 “like Sarah, who obeyed Abraham and called him her master. You are her daughters if you do what is right and do not give way to fear”). I dedicate my children unto You, for Your kingdom, for Your works as Your servants, as Hannah dedicated Samuel to You (1Samuel 1:27-28” I prayed for this child, and the LORD has granted me what I asked of him. So now I give him to the LORD. For his whole life he will be given over to the LORD. And he worshiped the LORD there”).I pray Lord that wherever my Adam is, that You will prepare him to be my husband and head of our household. I pray that when I meet him, that I will discern him with Your eyes and not at the ways of man. I declare purity over our courtship and pray that You will align his ways into Yours. I pray that he will respect me and love me the way You do (Ephesians 1:25:28 “Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her to make her holy, cleansing her by the washing with water through the word, and to present her to himself as a radiant church, without stain or wrinkle or any other blemish, but holy and blameless. In this same way, husbands ought to love their wives as their own bodies. He who loves his wife loves himself”). In this time of preparation, I pray that You will protect him from the distractions of this world and may his eyes be fixed on You.

Thank you Lord for I believe You have answered my prayer. AMEN


Abuse 

Dear Heavenly Father, I come before You as Your servant, Your daughter, a daughter Zion. Father, there are many things that I have encountered, physically and emotionally. Lord, You see what man does not see, You know all things. I pray Lord that You will heal me, from all emotional abuse, from words that were spoken to me or over my life (Isaiah 53:5 “…By His stripes we are healed”)

Where people have said painful words, I ask You to heal me Father and make me whole. Give me the grace to forgive them, because when we forgive those who trespass against us, You forgive our sins (1John 1:19 “If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness”). Give me the grace to be able to pray for them. I pray against any form of bitterness, anger, pain, fear and sadness I may feel towards these people/this person. Holy Spirit, help me to understand that because You woke me up today, you still have a great plan for my life (Jeremiah 29:11 “For I know the plans I have for you,” says the LORD. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope”)

I also pray for those who have hurt me, that salvation will be their portion and that they will desire a deeper relationship with You (Matthew 5:44” But I say to you, Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you)

We give you praise Lord, all Glory goes to you. AMEN 

 

Dear Heavenly Father, 

In hard times it’s difficult to rejoice, but I thank you Lord for giving me another day. I come before you Lord, and ask you to wash me with your precious blood (Ephesians 1:7 “He is so rich in kindness and grace that he purchased our freedom with the blood of his Son and forgave our sins“). Father, you know my hidden secrets, You see all the painful encounters I have had. I pray Lord that You will heal me from all physical abuse. I pray You will help me to forget this painful experience and cleanse me with Your precious blood. I pray against self-pity, loneliness, depression and guilt. Remind me O Lord, that there is no condemnation in Christ Jesus and that you foresaw this matter before my existence on earth and You still died for my sins on the cross (Isaiah 46:10 “I make known the end from the beginning, from ancient times, what is still to come. I say, ‘My purpose will stand, and I will do all that I please”).I know that as Your servant at times we experience painful circumstances, but just as You won over death, help me to overcome this situation. Give me the grace to forgive those who have hurt me, it’s not easy but I know that Your grace is sufficient (2 Corinthians 12:9-10 “And He said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore most gladly I will rather boast in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me. Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in needs, in persecutions, in distresses, for Christ’s sake. For when I am weak, then I am strong”. Teach me to be content in You and understand that only You can fully satisfy me and my every need.  May the Holy Spirit remind me that I am worth more than rubies. Help me not to be ashamed of my scars, but know that through this experience you will strengthen me for greater things, as your words says: I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me”- Philippians 4:13. Be with me O Lord, be my peace, strength now and forever more. 

AMEN 

                                                                        


Generational Curses 

Dear Lord, 

I thank you for today Father as I believe You are doing a new thing in my life and the lives of my family members today in Jesus name. Father, I bring the matter of marriage before your O Lord. I thank You my Lord, as I know as Your daughter that it is my portion to be married in. Right now Father, I come against any generational curses that have had legal right upon my marriage in the name of Jesus. I disconnect myself, and all my relatives from my father and mothers side in Jesus name. I pray Lord that where there has been a drought in the area of marriage in my family, I uproot it and plant a seed of prosperous marriages in Jesus name. I repent on behalf of my parents and ancestors for any form of polygamous activities in Jesus name. I come against any spirit of lust, perversion, idol worship, rebellion, witchcraft and sexual immorality in my family and I declare holiness and righteousness upon my entire family and children to come in Jesus name (Luke 10:19 ” I have given you authority to trample on snakes and scorpions and to overcome all the power of the enemy, nothing will harm you”). 

 I destroy everything that is contrary to Your will in my family blood line in Jesus name, I come against any jezebel spirit and command you to release yourself from my life and my family’s life in Jesus name. Any demonic forces that have been bringing the wrong men and women into our family, we disconnect ourselves from them in Jesus name. I destroy any evil dedications, traditions and witchcraft from myself and my entire family in Jesus name (Jeremiah 1:19 “They will fight against you, but they shall not prevail against you. For I am with you, says the Lord, to deliver you”). I declare salvation upon my entire lineage and declare that we belong in the lineage of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. I destroy any spiritual marriage assigned to my life and that of my family in Jesus name. I destroy any curses of polygamy spoken over the men and women of our household in Jesus name. I rebuke shame and disgrace and declare honour upon our household. Wherever my Adam is, I declare that you will awaken and prepare him and bring us together at the appointed time. Delay shall no longer be my portion. Every prophetic word that You have spoken Lord over my marriage will start to manifest from today forward in Jesus name. I thank You Lord for this deliverance and for this breakthrough. I give You praise because just like David we shall sing to the songs of victory (2 Samuel 22 “David sang to the LORD the words of this song when the LORD delivered him from the hand of all his enemies and from the hand of Saul”). I thank you for this big testimony and my entire family shall have Your praise on their lips.  AMEN.
