The Harp And The Incense

Today's WordPicture your son or daughter or anyone else walking up to you and asking you for something without a “good day”, “hello” or a form of greeting. You would consider that rude wouldn’t you?Well, that is exactly how it is when we attempt to approach God without first taking time to greet Him in praise. Prayer and praise must go together, it is with praise we must approach the throne of God’s grace. Psalm 100:4

The hosts of heaven bowed before God with harps and incense, representing praise and our prayers. They must go together, we must praise to give our prayers access into God’s presence. We can only get God to step into our situations with our praise, for He inhabits the praises of His people. So let’s get to praising…

And when He had taken the scroll, the four living creatures and the twenty-four elders of the heavenly Sanhedrin prostrated themselves before the Lamb. Each was holding a harp (lute or guitar), and they had golden bowls full of incense (fragrant spices and gums for burning), which are the prayers of God’s people (the saints). Revelation 5:8 AMP
