God Saves Our Prayers
Daily Prayer for October 21
CHRISTOPH FRIEDRICH BLUMHARDT
“Then another angel came and stood at the altar, holding a golden censer; and he was given a great quantity of incense to offer with the prayers of all God’s people upon the golden altar in front of the throne. And from the angel’s hand the smoke of the incense went up before God with the prayers of his people. Revelation 8:3–4, NEB
Lord God, we come before you and ask you to turn our hearts and minds to you alone, to you who have power over the whole world and who can do everything in our hearts according to your will. Let there be light in our time. Hear and answer the many prayers that have already come to you, rising for centuries before your throne, prayers for your kingdom and for your will on earth. This earth has become the prey of evil. We are poor and needy, and you alone can help us. Help us, O Lord, our God and Father. After this misery let your day come, your great day over all the world and over all peoples. “Amen
When our prayers are not answered in a timely manner or exactly the way we wanted, we can begin to think that our prayers are wasted. The Bible shows this is not true.
God hears the prayers of His children. No prayer is wasted. We must remember that God’s will is better than our own. We must trust His will. Accepting our Heavenly Father’s will over our own will is an act of obedience.
We must be faithful to God in all circumstances. One day we will be in the presence of the Lord God Almighty. Then everything will become clear to us. Until that day, let us choose to trust God with all of our hearts.
Pray for Israel,
