Fast of Esther

She feared for her life. Either her husband the King would grant her mercy and not kill her or she would be put to death. For she was not allowed to appear unless he called her.  Would her husband, the king extend his scepter, which would mean she would live. Would she be able to save her nation? She had fasted and prayed for 3 days before she appeared before her husband the King. G-d sent angels to force her husband's hand to extend the scepter. She risked her life in order to save her nation. The Fast of Esther commemorates this. We commemorate this every year on the day preceding Purim. When Purim falls on a Sunday, we fast on Thursday.
