Counted as Incense…

“May my prayer be counted as incense before You; the lifting up of my hands as the evening offering.” (Ps 141:2)
 
The Old Testament imagery of the incense burning perpetually within the temple and the animal sacrifices being made to God each morning and evening was a physical pattern that provides an illustration of what our lives ought to be.
 
Our prayers bring joy to Him and are sent before His presence as much as any offering made by the Old Testament priesthood. Your prayers matter. Your words are heard by the Ancient of Days. So pray without ceasing (1 Thess 5:17) and may our lives be living and holy sacrifices to Him.
 
“Therefore I urge you, brethren, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies a living and holy sacrifice, acceptable to God, which is your spiritual service of worship.” (Rom 12:1)
 
Matt. 4:4 #Biblebites
