A Reward for Diligence Part 2

This Thursday, May 4th, is the National Day of Prayer. The motto this year is, 

"Hear Us... Forgive Us... Heal Us ...For Your Great Name’s Sake!" 

This was Daniel’s prayer. Daniel was an intercessor during a time of great captivity, and his diligence in intercession was greatly rewarded. 

 

Mordecai was another intercessor in Scripture who was greatly rewarded for his labors. When we read the book of Esther, it is easy to focus on her story, but Mordecai was the one who first began interceding when he saw the plans of the wicked to destroy God’s people, and he was the one who influenced Esther to go before the King. 

After Mordecai and Esther humbled themselves before God and interceded and obtained a victory, they were not satisfied! Haman had been hanged, but they remained burdened, longing to see complete deliverance for God’s people.

 

Esther went before the king a second time, but this time falling at his feet with tears interceding for God’s people. The king was moved and responded by giving Mordecai and Esther authority to decide what to do about the situation. Scripture says that all Mordecai commanded was written, and it was sealed with the king’s signet ring. 

 

Mordecai’s diligence in intercession bore GREAT fruit! He and Esther willingly offered themselves to the Lord for the sake of His people, and God moved mightily. 

 

Mordecai had been just another one of those Jews in captivity, sitting at the gate of the palace in sackcloth and ashes, but then this man was clothed with fine linen, with a crown of gold on his head, and the signet ring on his finger. He was second to the king! Mordecai humbled himself before the Lord, crying out to God for His people for deliverance for His name’s sake. Because of his willingness to humble himself and give himself to intercession, God’s people were delivered, AND many Gentiles were converted! They experienced a revival. 

 

If we, God’s people, continue to humble ourselves and intercede for America, not being satisfied with the victories we have obtained, but continuing to cry out for a revival until we see it happen, we will be rewarded. Just as He did with Mordecai and Esther, God is going to move mightily through those who have given themselves willingly to Him. 

 

"Hear Us... Forgive Us... Heal Us ...For Your Great Name’s Sake!"
