Vials of Odours
I have another raindrop to post today! Yesterday, I had the privilege of spending most of the day with my amazing parents, and Mother told me to read Revelation 5:8. It says, "And when he had taken the book, the four beasts and four and twenty elders fell down before the Lamb, having every one of them harps, and golden vials full of odours, which are the prayers of saints."
Apparently, when I pray a prayer, it is not simply heard and answered: it stays before the throne in golden vials!!! They are before the throne still, not null and void or floating in some great chasm in the universe or dissipated or evaporated or annihilated. Those prayers are still right in front of God smelling up the throne area!!
That is a powerful reminder of our role in praying for people who will not or cannot pray for themselves!! Join forces with God to overcome evil in the lives of those you love!! Those prayers are eternal!!
