“Relenting Wrath: The Role of the Desperate Prayer in the Mystery of Divine Providence” — David Platt (T4G 2014)
David Platt preaches from Exodus 32 on the unchanging perfections, purposes, and promises of God — all of which make up His ever-unfolding plan. From the text, it’s clear what Moses knows and confesses about God affects the way he prayed. Therefore, the doctrine of divine providence is not an excuse for laziness in prayer but rather the primary catalyst for a pursuit of prayer rightly understood. In Platt’s words, God wills to work through willing intercessors, who plead for God’s glory to fill the earth.
