Dear God, Part 2: Send Me

July 9, 2023 / Isaiah 6:1-8

Carrie Butler, Network Prayer Pastor

Isaiah sees God and listens to a message from God.

Isaiah 6:1-8
In the year that King Uzziah died, I saw the Lord, high and exalted, seated on a throne; and the train of his robe filled the temple. 2 Above him were seraphim, each with six wings: With two wings they covered their faces, with two they covered their feet, and with two they were flying. 3 And they were calling to one another:
         “Holy, holy, holy is the Lord Almighty;
                   the whole earth is full of his glory.”
4 At the sound of their voices the doorposts and thresholds shook and the temple was filled with smoke.
         5 “Woe to me!” I cried. “I am ruined! For I am a man of unclean lips, and I live among a people of unclean lips, and my eyes have seen the King, the LORD Almighty.”
         6 Then one of the seraphim flew to me with a live coal in his hand, which he had taken with tongs from the altar. 7 With it he touched my mouth and said, “See, this has touched your lips; your guilt is taken away and your sin atoned for.”
         8 Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?”
         And I said, “Here am I. Send me!”

Isaiah had to be and in order to the vision and the message God had for him.


God wants to have conversations with us.

“My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me.” – John 10:27

“The best way to start praying, therefore, is actually to stop praying. To pause. To be still. To put down your prayer list and surrender your own personal agenda. To stop talking at God long enough to focus on the wonder of who He actually is. To ‘be still before the Lord and wait patiently for Him.’” – Pete Greig

Isaiah reacts in a way, aware of his sin.

Isaiah what he is saying yes to before he answers God.
