Prayer = God’s Spiritual Incense

11 December 2020

Your prayers touch heaven in a very real way! Every time you pray, from the moment you do, your prayers come directly before the Lord.


Three scriptures that support this truth:


1) From this week’s reading:


“…and they were holding golden bowls full of incense, which are the prayers of God’s people. Revelation 5:8c


2) This verse reminds of me of Acts 10 when the angel appeared to Cornelius and said,


Your prayers and gifts to the poor have come up as a memorial offering before God.


3) It also reminds me of Daniel when it says of his prayers,


Since the first day that you set your mind to gain understanding and to humble yourself before your God, your words were heard, and I have come in response to them.”


Remembering that our prayers touch God in a very real way inspires us to pray more. As we pray, remember that the most powerful way to pray is to:


  • Pray God’s Word.


  • Pray inspired by/led by the Holy Spirit.


This Weeks Challenge: As we bring 2020 to conclusion, in the busyness of the holidays, intentionally protect extra time to pray into 2021 for your own life, and also pray for God’s plan for GoChurch.


Happy Christmas! smiley
