Esther 8 - Key

v3

And Esther spake yet again before the king, and fell down at his feet, and besought him with tears to put away the mischief of Haman the Agagite, and his device that he had devised against the Jews.
It says that Esther spake yet again before the king. This reminds me of something I noticed when studying 1 Samuel 23 with my friends:
1 Samuel 23:4
Then David enquired of the LORD yet again. And the LORD answered him and said, Arise, go down to Keilah; for I will deliver the Philistines into thine hand.
After David had already asked the Lord about going down to that town, it says that David enquired of the LORD yet again.

Application

Sometimes there are things in our lives that we have already prayed about before, and it may seem like it will do no good to pray about it anymore because we have not received a complete answer yet. In those cases, I'll remember David and Esther, and I'll be persistent to speak yet again before the king, and to enquire of the LORD yet again.
