Then another angel with a gold incense burner came and stood at the altar. And a great amount of incense was given to him to mix with the prayers of God’s people as an offering on the gold altar before the throne. The smoke of the incense, mixed with the prayers of God’s holy people, ascended up to God from the altar where the angel had poured them out. ~Revelation 8:3-4, NLT
I can remember the first time someone showed me these verses.
I was sitting in a Bible study one Monday night, with a lot on my mind and very doubtful that God had been listening to my prayers.
When she referenced this verse, it’s as if my heart was literally going to burst out of my chest.
It brought me to tears.
I mean I was in complete awe.
As I read the verses over and over a few more times, I just kept saying, “Thank you, Lord.”
It was a beautiful reminder that God does hear our prayers and they are placed on the golden altar in front of His throne.
Every one of your prayers.
Even the ones you thought may have never reached Him.
Even the ones about what you have been waiting for or on.
I recently wrote about 3 Keys To Praying Powerful And Effective Prayers.
I pray that you truly meditate on these scriptures this week along wih the three keys I mentioned in my previous blog post.
Try creating an image of the verses in Revelation in your mind before you pray.
May you be equipped with a new level of confidence, awe and wonder when you approach your Father in prayer.
Scripture references: The Holy Bible (NLT)
