Another angel came and stood at the altar, holding a golden censer; and much incense was given to him, so that he might add it to the prayers of all the saints on the golden altar which was before the throne. And the smoke of the incense, with the prayers of the saints, went up before God out of the angel’s hand. Revelation 8:3-4
The Bible says that God created angels to be ministering spirits. They have heavenly roles and earthly roles. This angel somehow sweetens the smell of the prayers of God’s people (saints). How that all works with God answering prayers, I do not know. But what a magnificent thing to do.
How sweet are my prayers before God? Are they self-centered or other-centered.
Lord Jesus, as we start this day, I pray that I might be useful in Your kingdom and a blessing to those I see. Thank you for all the good things You have been doing. Give me the wisdom I need. May angels amplify my prayers and may Your power be on display in the answers.
