prayer as incenseREVELATION 8

We are never alone

SCRIPTURE

v.4 The smoke of the incense, together with the prayers of the saints, went up before God from the angel’s hand.

OBSERVATION

The start of this chapter reminds us that prayers of the saints go to the throne of God who knows and sees all things and answers them according to His wisdom.  Surely this exciting thought should spur us on to be bold in our prayers to God, knowing that He has the answer.

APPLICATION

We are never, ever, praying alone.  Isn’t it wonderful to know that saints, angels and all God’s people are already praying and our prayers are heard by God.

PRAYER

Almighty God, our Heavenly Father, thank you that I can bring my prayers to the foot of your throne with confidence, knowing that not only do You hear them but that You know the best answers to them.  With this knowledge, help me to be bolder in my prayer life.  Amen
