For this night prayers, we will be studying the book of Esther.
God is too faithful to fail. When your time comes, it doesn’t matter who has been there before you, God knows how to place you on that seat because it is not by process but by grace.
The bible says, During the third year of his rule, Xerxes gave a big dinner for all his officials and officers. The governors and leaders of the provinces were also invited, and even the commanders of the Persian and Median armies came. For 180 days he showed off his wealth and spent a lot of money to impress his guests with the greatness of his kingdom.
A dinner that lasted for 180 days to show off his wealth.
At the end of this time, King Xerxes gave another dinner and invited everyone in the city of Susa, no matter who they were. The eating and drinking lasted seven days in the beautiful palace gardens.
While the men were enjoying themselves, Queen Vashti gave the women a big dinner inside the royal palace.
On the seventh day as the king was filled with joy, he sent a message to his wife who was also celebrating with her friends to come so that he can show the beauty of his wife to the people. The king wanted her to wear her crown and let his people and his officials see how beautiful she was.
Under normal circumstances almost every woman will like such. In everything we do, we should always know that the spiritual controls the physical whether we like it or not it has been like that and it will always be like that.
The king has to seek the advice of his officials and what response could the king receive? More fire.
Your Majesty, if you agree, you should write for the Medes and Persians a law that can never be changed. This law would keep Queen Vashti from ever seeing you again. Then you could let someone who respects you be queen in her place.
The king was happy and a law was written. Despite the law the king still have the feelings for his wife but because an atmosphere has been created, the King’s personal adviser spoke to him that Vashti’s time was over. The crown cannot fit Vashti’s head anymore.
Esther and other virgins were selected and they need to be cleansed for twelve months. Other virgins went to see the king before Esther and they demanded for things to take along.
When it was Esther’s turn to go and see the king the bible says that Esther demanded for nothing except what was freely given to everybody.
Let’s consider the following points:
- Esther was among those that was selected despite she doesn’t have mother that would have advised her on how to behave because women knows more than men on issues like that.
- Esther did not spend the twelve months like others.
- Before Esther’s turn other virgins went to see the king.
- Esther left other virgins as she went to the king.
- After Esther’s turn the competition ended because she came out with the crown that they were competing for.
- I think there were people that were charged with the responsibility of crowning the Queen.
These will be the basis of our prayers starting from 12 midnight tonight.
We will pray the following prayers as we prayed since last night.
Now to the prayers.
- O Lord, any power seating or assigned to seat on my blessings and that of my family in the second half of 2021, be unseated in the name of Jesus Christ.
- Father, let anyone assigned to occupy my position and that of my family in the second half of 2021 fall down and die in the name of Jesus Christ.
- O Lord, let my blessings and that of my family become too hot for the enemy to handle in the second half of 2021 in the name of Jesus Christ.

- Let the counsel of my adversaries and the adversaries of my family turn to foolishness in the second half of 2021 in the name of Jesus Christ.
