During a March 22, 2014 Discipleship class, my assignment was to talk about Queen Esther and how I related to her life in the bible. As You recall, Haman had a hatred for the Jews, and deceptively convinced the Persian king Ahasuerus that the Jews needed to be exterminated. A decree was passed that this extermination would occur. However, Queen Esther being a Jew herself, with the guidance from Mordecai - asked all the Jews to Fast and Pray, before any she would take any action. During the Discussion in my class - my question was to the group and they take this scenario and apply it to any issues that are happening today. One sister stated, yes, the Stand Your Ground Law in Florida, where it is devised to imprision and or murder African Americans here in America. We all agreed, it is the same situation, the Susan another one of the class participants said, "We Need To Fast and Pray" My heart just leaped! And So here is the beginnings of the Stand Your Ground WITH JESUS site. To pray and fast and then act. BUT Pray and fast first to the Lord, then ACT under the power of the Holy Spirit. Please join us if you feel lead by the power of the Lord Jesus Christ.
