Anyone who is having troubles should pray. ... When a believing person prays, great things happen. -James 5:13,16 NCV

Prayers as Incense

And when he had taken it, the four living creatures and the twenty-four elders fell down before the Lamb. Each one had a harp and they were holding golden bowls full of incense, which are the prayers of the saints. (Revelation 5:8)

In this majestic picture of heaven we get a divine view of our prayers. Yesterday I spoke of prayer as an offering. Again we see this idea as prayer is spoken of in this way. In the Old Testament incense was used on the altar as a means of worship. As we pray a beautiful aroma of worship is released in heaven.. our prayers.. even the unanswered ones.. are beautiful to God.

I am amazed when I think of this aspect of my prayers Lord. Once again I come to you asking for you kingdom to come.. your will to be done.. and heavenly incense to be released.

Amen
