Psalms 141:2 says, “May my prayer be set before you like incense; may the lifting up of my hands be like the evening sacrifice.”
The Bible speaks of “bowls of prayer” that are in front of the golden altar of God in heaven (Revelation 5:8 and 8:4). It says that these are the prayers of the saints, those Christians who have prayed to God throughout the generations.
Apparently, when we pray, the prayers stay before God, even after we have stopped praying. Even after we have died. Think about that!
Every prayer ever prayed is saved by God.
God is still hearing and answering prayers that were prayed thousands of years ago.
Once a prayer is offered, nothing can remove that prayer from God’s altar.
If your grandmother prayed for you 20 years ago, her prayer is still working.
When we pray for people, our prayers will last.
We are all benefiting from the prayers that people prayed on our behalf.
Our ancestors whom we’ve never met prayed for future generations that they never met, their prodigy – that’s you and me! We are riding on those prayers, still today. Any good thing that is accomplished by us is happening because someone prayed for us.
Let’s be sure to invest in the future by praying today. Prayer is the most powerful resource we have!
