Revelation, Day 8

The prayers of God’s people. Read Revelation chapter 8.

Before he moves to the discussion about the judgments from the trumpets, John reveals to us that there is an angel who brings an offering to the Lord. That offering includes the prayers of God’s people. Before the judgments are even announced, God receives the prayers of his people.

Our prayers matter to God. Bringing our desires and our wants and our hopes to the foot of the throne of God allows us to better understand his holiness and his mercy. Those prayers are important and matter to him and they are heard before God moves forward with the judgment.

Are we seeking bringing our prayers to God? Do we offer prayers for everything going on in our life and for all of the people that impact our lives?
