‘Why should the name of our father be done away from among his family, because he hath no son? Give unto us therefore a possession among the brethren of our father’(Numbers 27:4).
‘And Moses brought their cause before the LORD. And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying, the daughters of Zelophehad speak right: thou shalt surely give them a possession of an inheritance among their father’s brethren; and thou shalt cause the inheritance of their father to pass unto them. And thou shalt speak unto the children of Israel, saying, if a man dies, and have no son, then ye shall cause his inheritance to pass unto his daughter. And if he has no daughter, then ye shall give his inheritance unto his brethren. And if he has no brethren, then ye shall give his inheritance unto his father’s brethren. And if his father has no brethren, then ye shall give his inheritance unto his kinsman that is next to him of his family, and he shall possess it: and it shall be unto the children of Israel a statute of judgment, as the LORD commanded Moses’(Number 27:5-11).
God said that the daughters of Zelophehad were right. Esther went on hunger strike, a suicide prayer mission to save herself and her people. Her prayers gave the king a sleepless night and forced him to request for Esther’s presence. Esther’s prayers opened the king’s mouth to talk to the favor of Esther.
Esther’s prayers brought the downfall of her arc enemy and the enemy of God’s people called Haman. Her prayers revoked the decree and brought victory to God’s children. Her prayers wiped away all tears from God’s people, gave them rest, feasts and promoted Mordecai.
It is an insult to God for his own children to remain at the mercies of the devil and his agents. The earth, the fullness thereof and people therein belong to God by creation. Many Christians do not know their rights and as a result, they underestimate themselves, undervalue themselves and allow the devil who is the usurper to subtly deceive them to believe his lies concerning who owns all things. Esther, like many believers, originally believed that she could not do anything.
‘Again Esther spake unto Hatach, and gave him commandment unto Mordecai; All the king’s servants, and the people of the king’s provinces, do know, that whosoever, whether man or woman, shall come unto the king into the inner court, who is not called, there is one law of his to put him to death, except such to whom the king shall hold out the golden scepter, that he may live: but I have not been called to come in unto the king these thirty days’(Esther 4:10-11).

God does not want any believer to live a life of defeat. Accepting poverty, illness, or any other issue is insulting. God himself referred to us as his sons, the body of Christ, new creatures, beloved of God, Jesus’ brothers, the temple of God, kings, heirs of God, representatives of Christ, peculiar treasure, eagles, and the shepherd of the great shepherd.
The devil speaks with his servant, the devil. When you reject prayer, you reject communication with your God, and until you start communicating with Him, God will not act. We refer to that as “dreadful quiet.” I urge you to recite these prayers in order to free yourself from the devil’s silence.
