Prayer for Isaiah 6:9

“And He replied: Go! Say to these people: Keep listening, but do not understand; keep looking, but do not perceive.”

Heavenly Father, it must have been wonderful for Isaiah to see the Lord, high and lifted up, but what a solemn message he was given - that people would hear his words but reject his message. Lord it is human nature to expect people to respond positively to the glorious gospel of grace, and yet I see that many will hear the words of the gospel but not listen, nor understand because of the hardness of their hearts. Help me not to become discouraged when I try to share the gospel and am rebuffed or scorned. Help me to be faithful in the work You have given me to do and I pray that some would hear and respond with repentance and joy - for the honour of Your holy name. This I ask in Jesus' name, AMEN.
