The Incense of Prayer

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. In a sense prayer is an offering. We come before our loving Father offering our worship and our love to Him. 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.. and a lovely aroma in His nostrils.

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