Esther Fast for America

“There are moments in history when a door for massive change opens. Great revolutions, either good or evil, spring up in the vacuum created by these openings. In such divine moments, key men, women and entire generations risk everything to become the hinge of history—the ‘pivot point’ that determines which way the door will swing. Esther is a prototype of history’s hinge: a courageous woman who humbly and artfully spoke truth to power. Facing witchcraft and dark conspiracies in Persia’s power base, Queen Esther risked her life, armed with nothing but an undying love for her people, a providential position of authority, her own dignity and the secret arsenal of corporate prayer and fasting. Through her, a nation was spared annihilation.” (Lou Engle)1

“Esther said, ‘I and my young women will also fast likewise. Only then would I dare go to the king since it is not allowed by law, and if I perish, I perish.’” (Esther 4:16b; ISV).

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  1. Pray that the women who love Jesus would rise up in this hour and know who they are!

  2. Intercede for the women lost in darkness who are rising up to fill a vacuum created by this last election. They feel disenfranchised and are aligning with histories injustices. Pray they would know God’s deep love for them.

  3. Declare that humble, God-fearing women, who understand their glorious purpose, will rise up to take their inheritance and their places in history.

  4. Pray for those participating in the Esther fast from sundown, March 8, to sundown, March 11, that they would have grace and strength and break the witchcraft seeking to curse President Trump and this new administration.

A prayer you can pray:

Father, we call for Your women to rise up! Let them know exactly who they are in You! We pray for those women lost in darkness who have risen up to fill a perceived vacuum of historic injustice. Show them how deeply You love them. In their place, we declare that God-fearing, glory-filled, humble women would rise up to that place God has prepared for them in this Purim season —to break the power of witchcraft over President Trump and over the nation, that God’s purposes can move forward and accomplish His perfect will. Thank You, Jesus! Amen.

Today’s decree:

We declare that God’s women are rising in the humility of fasting and intercession, and witchcraft is breaking and the nation is moving forward in the purposes of God!
