The Scent of Prayer
Soul Snack 72/13 ... The Scent of Prayer
Life is as unpredictable as it is fragile.
The prince of this earth, the ruler of the air challenges the God of heaven well beyond human understanding and mortal endurance. Satan attempts to sever the silver-chord of life and snatch those who belong to the Holy-One.
BUT prayer is inviting a defender and slipping an impenetrable sheath over life's silver-chord. Prayer raises a shield, recruits the heavenly hosts and erects a canopy.
Prayer is more robust than satan's plans. It is more powerful than all of evil's intentions.
Prayer is as safe as the heavenly gates are strong. It cannot be stolen, weakened or diluted.
Prayers rise to heaven on the incense laden hands of angels. They are the sweet fragrances of earth that are welcomed and pleasant to heaven's throne room.
The smoke of the incense, together with the prayers of God’s people, went up before God from the angel’s hand. (Rev 8:4)
Life maybe fragile but prayers aren't.
