“Having a harp, and golden bowls full of incense, which are the prayers of the saints” Revelations 5:8b (NKJV)
Our prayers are very important to God. But if we really want our prayers to count, we must pray the Word. Why? Because the Word cannot return void.
Prayers of self-pity will never bring supernatural results. It’s only when we pray God’s Word that we begin to fill up the golden vials (bowls) of heaven. God keeps those prayers because He keeps His Word. Answers will come. Pity-parties are not the answer. God’s Word will bring the supernatural.
When we send out prayers to God, we must also check out hearts to see if there is spiritual “static” that will prevent our prayers from traveling up to heaven. Our messages to God can get lost or waylaid if we have some unconfessed sin. If your prayers are going unanswered, check your heart to see if you are harboring sin. If so, repent, and watch your prayer wing its way to heaven.
Dear Heavenly Father,
Today help us to see that self-pity never does anything. It is unbelief, and it is simply an occasion for the flesh to exalt itself. We trust in Your promises. We put our flesh down and stand fast on Your Word.
In Jesus’s Name,
