Today in worship we wrapped up 5 weeks in James coupled with a reading from Esther. Ironically, the King (Ahasuerus) asked Esther to tell him what she wanted “even to half of his kingdom” which was a segue into the reading from James. James invites us to trust the power of prayer, following his statement about when to pray (always for everything). We are asked to pray for what we want, listen for God’s response (the important part), and act with faith that God’s plan will come to fruition.

I invite your comments and likes,

Readings: Esther 7:1-6, 9-10, 9:20-22; Psalm 124; James 5:13-20; Mark 9:38-50
