Colossians 1:3

Queen Esther needed prayer. She was going before her husband, the king on behalf of her people, the Jews. She called upon them to pray for her.

They did.

The important thing to note here is that neither the queen nor the Jewish people allowed pride to stand in the way of their relationship.

Queen Esther could’ve thought herself too good to have to call upon the common Jewish people for prayer.

But she didn’t.

The people could’ve become jealous and turned on the queen. They could’ve decided that she was too good for their prayers.

But they didn’t.

The queen and the people didn’t allow their social statuses get in the way of their need for each others support.

Within the family of God there are many different people. Some are rich. Some are poor. Some are highly successful. Some are struggling. Some have been serving Jesus for decades others have just been reborn. No matter what their status each person can benefit from another Christians prayers. We are called to lift one another up, regardless of how well or poorly we think they might be doing. Pray for your fellow Christians. Don’t allow worldly success or failures affect your prayers.

God isn’t a respecter of persons. We shouldn’t be either.
