Default Is your prayer life stagnant?

ďAnother angel, who had a golden censer, came and stood at the altar. He was given much incense to offer, with the prayers of all Godís people, on the golden altar before the throne. The smoke of the incense, together with the prayers of Godís people, went up before God from the angelís hand.Ē Revelation 8:3Ė4 (TNIV)

There are many times that I feel like my prayers are useless. I repeat the same thing, day after day, and see no answer from God, no results.

Other times, I treat prayer like the least and last thing, when thereís nothing else I can do: ďIíll pray for you.Ē I say it when Iím feeling helpless and hopeless.

When did prayer become like this for me?

Jesus prayed constantly. He would sometimes stay up all night to pray. He went away to lonely places to pray. He experienced everything we do, so Iím sure there were times He felt like God wasnít hearing Him. In the Garden of Gethsemane, He prayed for the cup of suffering to pass from Him, and His prayer wasnít answered.

In Revelation, the prayers of Godís people are offered with incense on the altar. Our prayers are like incenseóan aroma before God, pleasing Him, moving Him. The aroma becomes stronger the more we pray or the more intensely we pray.

Our prayers rise before Godís throne. Our prayers reach Him.

So even if I feel like my prayers are worthless, or Iíve become repetitive, I have to remember that theyíre valuable; they can please God and move Him.

Faith Step: Is your prayer life stagnant? Give it a new jolt of energy. Remember that your prayers are treasured, that they rise to God where He sits on His throne. Devote yourself to a certain amount of prayer every day this week, and make your prayers incense before God.
