Isaiah foretells a prince of peace – podcast

praying hand 3Hundreds of years before Jesus was born, the prophet Isaiah foretold the coming of a baby who would be called “wonderful advisor, mighty God, prince of peace.” Listen again to our prayer for today from Isaiah in the Bible – Isaiah 9:2-7

Isaiah 9:2-7

Contemporary English Version (CEV)

War Is Over

2 Those who walked in the dark
    have seen a bright light.
And it shines upon everyone
who lives in the land
    of darkest shadows.
3 Our Lord, you have made
    your nation stronger.
Because of you, its people
    are glad and celebrate
like workers at harvest time
or like soldiers dividing up
    what they have taken.

4 You have broken the power
of those who abused
    and enslaved your people.
You have rescued them
just as you saved your people
    from Midian.
5 The boots of marching warriors
and the blood-stained uniforms
    have been fed to flames
    and eaten by fire.

A Child Has Been Born

6 A child has been born for us.
We have been given a son
    who will be our ruler.
His names will be
Wonderful Advisor
    and Mighty God,
Eternal Father
    and Prince of Peace.
7 His power will never end;
    peace will last forever.
He will rule David’s kingdom
    and make it grow strong.
He will always rule
    with honesty and justice.
The Lord All-Powerful
will make certain
    that all of this is done.
