Queen Esther was going before her husband on behalf of her people, the Jews. Instead of thinking too highly of herself to call upon the common Jewish people for prayer she reached out to them asking them to intervene.

The Jewish people’s response wasn’t rooted in jealousy of the Queen’s title, or in comparison between their situations. Instead they did as the Queen asked and prayed for her.

Neither the queen nor the people allowed their current positions to 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 Christian’s 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.
