Esther 7:2 (ESV)

2 And on the second day, as they were drinking wine after the feast, the king again said to Esther, “What is your wish, Queen Esther? It shall be granted you. And what is your request? Even to the half of my kingdom, it shall be fulfilled.”

Again, the king addressed Esther as Queen. Again, he expressed his readiness to give her whatever she wished for. Esther was in a better position than ever to present her request.
