Commentary
Wesley's Notes on the Bible

33:17 I will do this thing also that thou hast spoken - See the power of prayer! See the riches of God's goodness!

Think of their marvelous adaptation to the needs and happiness, not only of man, but of all living creatures. The sunshine and the rain, that gladden and refresh the earth, the hills and seas and plains, all speak to us of the Creator's love. It is God who supplies the daily needs of all His creatures.

And whatsoever ye shall ask in my Name, that will I do.'--John xiv. 12, 13.
