Multitude Monday: bowls of prayer

I'm studying the book of Revelation right now by using Beth Moore's study: Here and Now...There and Then. I'm so thankful for this study that is helping me understand better the book of Revelation. Notice that I said understand "better"...not sure if we can ever understand the book of Revelation completely! But what a joy it is to understand pieces of scripture for the first time.

Beth says that our prayers "...are sitting right before God in a bowl".

"Each one (the 24 elders) had a harp and they were holding golden bowls full of incense, which are the prayers of the saints." Revelation 5:8b

I praise God that our voices are heard when we pray and that our prayers are like incense to Him!

Psalm 141:1-2 (New International Version)

1 O LORD, I call to you; come quickly to me.
Hear my voice when I call to you.

2 May my prayer be set before you like incense;
may the lifting up of my hands be like the evening sacrifice.

holy experience

Hebrews 4:16 (New International Version)

Let us then approach the throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.
