So the Lord must wait for you to come to him
so he can show you his love and compassion.
For the Lord is a faithful God.
Blessed are those who wait for his help.
-Isaiah 30:18 (NLT)
At the Calvary Chapel I attend, there is a bigger-than-usual emphasis on prayer this summer, with prayer meetings popping up and more time spent talking about its value. Interesting that I should attend a prayer meeting Wednesday evening and have this reading this morning in my devotional. Prayer is a powerful thing!
