Here for such a time as this

*On the third day Esther put on her royal robes and stood in the inner court of the palace, in front of the king's hall. The king was sitting on his royal throne in the hall, facing the entrance.

When he saw Queen Esther standing in the court, he was pleased with her and held out to her the gold scepter that was in his hand. So Esther approached and touched the tip of the scepter.

Then the king asked, "What is it, Queen Esther? What is your request? Even up to half the kingdom, it will be given you."* Esther 5:1-3

I've won your favor,
now all I have to do is ask...
but see, that's the tricky part.
The place I get to, when I stand before you
with my heart in my hands...
