You've heard the physical law: what goes up must come down. But there's also a spiritual law: what goes down must come up. Our Epistle (2 Tim 3:14-4:2) tells us about what comes down, which is God's Word, and our Gospel reading (Luke 18:1-8) encourages us to send it back up. Isaiah 55 sets the background for this important dynamic in redemptive history as God accomplishes his work through our prayers.
