And another angel came and stood at the altar with a golden censer, and he was given much incense to offer with the prayers of all the saints on the golden altar before the throne ESV Revelation 8:3
Prayer as Worship
While we studied all the devastation and demonic/angelic happenings before Christ comes back, I want to take us back to the start of Revelation 8. Before the trumpets sound, the prayers of the saints ascend before God from the incense on the golden altar before the throne. Have you prayed today? Like really prayed? Like offered a sacrifice before God that wafted up before his face as a pleasing aroma of worship? Take a moment now to just stop and pray. Worship. Thank God for who He is and what He has done. Praise Him for the gospel.
Isn’t that refreshing? God gave us this wonderful opportunity in prayer, and I pray that all of us at Friendship grow in our prayers as we seek to worship God constantly in this way. Our prayers truly ascend before the throne in a powerful way.
Praying with you,
