An important topic in this prayer calendar is the threat posed by Iran. Iran has been working towards the total destruction of Israel since 1979 and has now announced that they will annihilate Israel by 2040. The laws/decrees of the Medes and Persians could not be changed (Daniel 6:9, 13 and 16) and neither can this modern-day Persian decree. Queen Esther successfully pleaded with King Ahasuerus for the lives of her people (Esther 5:8). The preceding law (Esther 3:13) could not be reversed but neither could the new law (Esther 8:8). The new law did give the Jews the right to defend themselves (Esther 9:10 and 16). It was a restrained revenge. During the coming months, pray that this modern-day Iranian law/decree will be made powerless, pray for a new Purim miracle! Nothing is impossible for the Lord God and our prayers are a powerful weapon in the spiritual battle being waged over Israel.
