DAY 1: Thankful for the avenue of prayer
And another angel came and stood at the alter with a golden censer, and he was given much incense to offer with the prayers of the saints on a golden alter before the throne, and the smoke of the incense, with the prayers of the saints, rose before God from the hand of the angel. Then the angel took the censer and filled it with fire from the alter and throw it on the earth, and there were peals of thunder, rumblings, flashes of lightning, and an earthquake. – Revelation 8:3-5
Our prayers are a sweet aroma before God. He loves to hear them. His response shakes heaven and earth. At times we are unaware of His actions, but they always happen. The gracious thing is that He answers according to what is truly needed. We can trust Him and His loving response.
Father, we are so grateful for this avenue of prayer. We are thrilled that you are concerned for us and desire to hear us. We trust your love for us and your response and we pledge to continue talking with you. We pray you are attentive to these concerns mentioned through the next 40 days. Open our hearts and minds to be aware of your presence. We pray through Jesus. Amen.
