Daily Reading-Esther C:12, 14-16, 23-25

Queen Esther is a great example to us of integrity at work in faith. She is inspired to do what she knows she has to do to be faithful to her conscience. Even though she knows that to seek an audience with the king could mean her death, she does so for the sake of bringing justice to her people. Her integrity and bravery do not go unrewarded.

Esther C:12, 14-16, 23-25

28 [C:12] Queen Esther, seized with mortal anguish, likewise had recourse to the Lord. 30 [C:14] She lay prostrate upon the ground, together with her handmaids, from morning until evening, and said: “God of Abraham, God of Isaac, and God of Jacob, blessed are you. Help me, who am alone and have no help but you, 31 [C:15] for I am taking my life in my hand. 32 [C:16] As a child I used to hear from the books of my forefathers that you, O LORD, always free those who are pleasing to you. 39 [C:23] Now help me, who am alone and have no one but you, O LORD, my God. “And now, come to help me, an orphan. 40 [C:24] Put in my mouth persuasive words in the presence of the lion, and turn his heart to hatred for our enemy, so that he and those who are in league with him may perish. 41 [C:25] Save us from the hand of our enemies; turn our mourning into gladness and our sorrows into wholeness.
