The Book of Esther recounts how Purim was the day that was found by the casting of lots to be the best day to destroy the Jews. But God turned the table around and destroyed the enemies instead...on the same day

We have been praying and fasting for the last three days (72 hour rotational non-stop). Knowing and understanding the times, we have ascended His holy mountain, coming and standing before the King on behalf of Israel and all the nations including our beloved country.

We have read the story of Esther over and over again.. (about 7 times for myself)...the last three days. The end of the story: God triumphs and reigns!

I would encourage you to read the story of Esther and know the significance of Purim! Through which, we will fear not, be strong and courageous and stand still and see the salvation of the Lord!
