Today we remember and give
thanks for the prophet Isaiah. Isaiah
son of Amoz is considered to be the greatest of the writing prophets and is
quoted in the New Testament more than any other Old Testament prophet. His name
means “Yahweh [the Lord] saves.” Isaiah prophesied to the people of
Collect of the Day:
Lord God, heavenly Father, through the prophet Isaiah, you continued the prophetic pattern of teaching your people the truth faith and demonstrating through miracles your presence in creation to heal it of its brokenness. Grant that your Church may see in your Son, our Lord Jesus Christ, the final end-times prophet whose teaching and miracles continue in your Church through the healing medicine of the Gospel and the Sacraments; through Jesus Christ, our Lord, who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever.
