Esther's Priestly Intercession

My utmost for You
Standing in the inner court 
Wearing royal robes 

Exodus 28; Esther 5

This prayer poem was an amazing insight in that my Exodus reading talked about the "holy garments" for "glory and beauty" to be worn by the royal priesthood, and how the priest was to come before God with the "stones of remembrance" for the people of God worn upon his shoulders.  In the Esther reading, Esther goes before the king wearing her royal robes and she carries the weight of God's people upon her shoulders as she intercedes for them.  Esther is ministering as a High Priest for the people of God!  A woman!  Imagine that!
