Prayers Like Incense

Romans 8:34 "Christ Jesus, who died - more than that, who was raised to life - is at the right hand of God and is also interceding for us."

Revelation 5:8 "...And when He had taken it [the scroll], 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 the saints."

The Offering

The fire is lit - Smoke is rising
Fragrance fills the air.
Jesus whispers - The Father's smiling,
He is pleased with my prayer.

The Spirit leads - As I worship,
Sweet aroma fills the room.
Lifting hands - My focus upward,
Praising Him dispels the gloom!

Lord, I know I am not worthy
Before Your holy throne to come.
But Jesus died - My sins atoning,
Forever death He freed me from.

Now, because He sits beside You,
The Eternal, Sacrificial Fire,
I can offer praise as incense
The fragrance lifting ever higher.

Thank You, Father, that You love me.
You gave the final sacrifice
So I could give my life an offering,
You paid the once and only price.
