How important are our prayers to God?


I was not intending to do a sequel to last week’s post but here we are.

I got another revelation this week about prayer during my quiet time that I would like to share.

It really encouraged me and changed the way I see my prayers even more.

 

“And when He had taken it, the four living creatures and the twenty-four elders fell down

before the Lamb. Each one had a harp and they were holding golden bowls full of incense,

which are the prayers of God’s people.”

Revelation 5:8

 

“Each one had a harp and they were holding golden bowls full of incense, which are the prayers

of God’s people.” 

 

So in this passage of scripture we learn two amazing things. 

Firstly, our prayers are not in some random place, or filed away in a place to be forgotten. 

They are not thrown away, discarded or lost. 

On the contrary, they are been treated with care and are obviously precious in God’s eyes

because they are in golden bowls! 

And secondly, our prayers are in the very throne room of God (Revelation 5:8)

 

Our prayers are very important to God. Don’t let the enemy lie to you that your prayers don’t 

mean much to God. The word shows us the truth about how important our prayers are. 

So keep praying and know that as your pray your prayers are in golden bowls in the very throne room

of God! 

 

“The Lord detests the sacrifice of the wicked but He delights in the prayers of the upright.”

Proverbs 15:8

Pray today, tomorrow, all the time!


I think we can all agree that this year has been one of a kind.

As I look back at the intense moments (and there were lots of those),

the times when I didn’t know how I would get through the week and season,

the powerlessness I felt, and so many other negative things, I am blown away

by the faithfulness of the Lord.

As I page through my diary it is littered with ticks.

 

They represent answered prayers.

As a situation came up I would bring it to Him and then write it down.

When He answered my prayer I would mark it.

Ninety percent of the prayers I wrote down He answered.

The remaining ten percent are long term prayers that I am still waiting on Him for.

So at the end of the day, all the prayers I made to Him when I was in trouble and

needed help urgently, He answered!

 

And that encourages me to keep praying because He does answer prayer.

 

He hears us when we call and He answers.

You may be in a tough spot at the moment but I want to remind you of the power of prayer.

It is a weapon we have been given. The word says He delights in our prayers so keep praying.

Don’t stop ever. I have to admit there are times I doubt if God has heard my prayers,

times I think God has deliberately chosen to ignore me but in His mercy and grace

He shows me the truth. He always hears us. He cares about everything we are going through

and that is why we can be confident when we pray.

 

As I close I want to share a video I watched that encouraged me to keep praying because the

God we serve is a God who answers prayer.

 

 

Bless you friends
