Prayer in Isaiah

I preached on the subject of Prayer in Isaiah at Leominster Fellowship on Sunday 5th Feb. 2012 following a series of messages at RRCC. These Notes began the following day from my Expository Notes on Isa.Ch.62 and they have developed over subsequent days.

God is amazed when He saw that there was no intercessor in Israel, “And he saw that there was no man, and wondered that there was no intercessor: therefore his arm brought salvation unto him; and his righteousness, it sustained him” (Isa.59:16). This verse is paralleled in a later chapter, “And I looked, and there was none to help; and I wondered that there was none to uphold: therefore mine own arm brought salvation unto me; and my fury, it upheld me” (63:5). Man’s lethargy in prayer spurs God to independent action.
