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!”
This is another of those passages that seems to talk directly to us, or at least it does for me when I read it. The question lingers in the air long after Isaiah heard it. ‘Whom shall I send? Who will go for us?’ Do you hear it? If you hear it, how will you answer?
Here I am Lord, send me.
I’m not great at speaking. I don’t always have the right words, or know what to say. But if you’ll help me, I’m willing.
Help me to speak for you, that others might share the joy I’ve found.
