These are some scriptures on my heart today that focus on areas for Sarah, myself and all the PTH team: For favor among many, blindness to the enemy and his plans to thwart God’s business. We have been placed on this journey, not just for the now, but for the legacy after we leave… to God be the Glory!!
Study 1Timothy 2:1-2, keeping in mind that our prayers are included with the incense prepared before the Lord. (Rev. 8:3-5)
As we continue to stir up that most inner-faith, and co-partner with all of you intercessors, we are so anticipating the Holy Spirit’s results! May we count on your prayers of influence on all the divine appointments that I’m confident God has already set up for us!!!
Our prayers are lifted before God as mighty incense (faith and prayer)… So picture this with me; our faithful prayers (joined with heavenly incense), including other faithful saints’ prayers, are poured out together before the golden altar, which is before the throne, as an accepted sacrifice.
Rev.8:3 And another angel came and stood at the altar, having a golden censer; and there was given unto him much incense, that he should offer it with the prayers of all saints upon the golden altar which was before the throne.
4 And the smoke of the incense, which came with the prayers of the saints, ascended up before God out of the angel’s hand.
5 And the angel took the censer, and filled it with fire of the altar, and cast it into the earth: and there were voices, and thundering’s, and lightnings, and an earthquake.
6 And the seven angels which had the seven trumpets prepared themselves to sound.
In this passage; the angel offers “incense” with the “prayers” of all the saints. Jesus mingles our humble prayers with the holy incense of His self-denial, His self-sacrifice and His righteousness. His merits make our prayers acceptable to God as a sweet fragrance. The angel filled the censer with fire and “cast it into the earth.” This symbolizes God’s judgements (and blessings) on the nations.
Also, another point to remember… Every place we go and stand and pray, all the prayers also apply to all the capitals where we have previously stood and prayed (America, 70+ nations), all linking together as the Holy Spirit promised.
Yes, much favor, ordered steps, focused prayer as faith holds fast!… Fire from Heaven… That’s what we are doing at the gates of the government seats all over the world… Thank you again for your faithfulness to pray. Amen
