Esther knew how dire the situation was. She fasted with her people. Esther put her life on the line and went into the king’s presence to plead for the lives of her people. It could have been a death sentence for her.

You know, God works in miraculous ways. God moved the king’s heart and the Jews were saved and God’s name was glorified.

He will have favor upon you and answer your prayer.
