This is the prayer Peter Adam has prayed before each of his chapel Esther talks. It’s based on an idea from 17th century London Puritan Jeremiah Burroughs.
Lord Jesus, as Mary sat at your feet and listened to your teaching, and you blessed her as she received your words: please bless us now as we hear your Holy Spirit’s words in the book of Esther. Help us to listen and learn in humility, thankfulness and faith. Amen
