Psalm 141:2 KJV
Let my prayer be set forth before thee as incense; and the lifting up of my hands as the evening sacrifice.
I’ll always remember my primary school headmaster for one thing. I don’t think anyone who knew him well enough could ever help but notice how much incense he burnt in his office.
I really didn’t know what brand of incense it was but it had a unique scent that one could pick up about two rooms away from his office. According to him, it warded off evil spirits and kept him in a safe zone.
Moses gave the Israelites incense from God for other reasons.
In the Book of Revelation we read that the prayers of the people are presented to God mixed with the sweet smell of incense (Rev 8:3-4). Perhaps David caught a glimpse of this in a vision and so was able to make such a prayer (Ps 141:2).
The smoke of our prayers are sweet smelling unto Him and they rise up like incense to our God. Angels are in place to ensure this so don’t render them jobless or idle. Burn some more and more incense in prayer and cause Heaven to notice your location by the scent you produce.
Have a blessed day.
