with prayers and petitions…

It occurred to me some time ago that we are in a time similar to that of Esther and the Jews.  The government has joined a plot to annihilate the Jews in her story.  If all of the rumors are true, Christians/Anglos are in just as desperate a place.

What did Esther do?  Mordecai directed her to make a request of King Xerxes.

I believe we should make our appeal to our king, Jesus.  Now we know that our struggle is not against flesh and blood but against principalities in the spirit, Ephesians 6:12.  We also know that it is not God’s will that any should perish, Matthew 18:14 and 2 Peter 3:8-10.

So, let us make our request to Jesus and ask Him to rescue the perishing, hold back the staggering from death – Proverbs 24:11; set the captives of darkness free, break the yokes of oppression, Isaiah 58:6.

If our enemy is spiritual, we know he has come only to steal, kill and destroy – John 10:10 and to do this to our physical enemies as well as us.  Let us join Heaven’s fight for them as well as ourselves.
