Text: Esther 5
After Esther completes three days of fasting, she develops a strategy to inform the King of Haman’s power play. First, she must approach the King in an unlawful manner. In doing so, she places herself at the mercy of the King. She then invites The King and Haman to consecutive banquets. Along the way Haman is tortured by Mordecai’s lack of worship and seeks counsel from his wife on how he might deal with it.
