You are Invited

May my prayer be set before You like incense; may the lifting up of my hands be like the evening sacrifice. Psalm 141:2

Today you are invited to consider what you do when you catch a delicious smell of fresh bread, or frying onions, or a sweetly scented rose. Imagine yourself breathing in the delightful smell. Now see God breathing in your prayers – a deep breath – as they rise like incense to His throne. Even the smallest prayer is a sweet perfume to our God. How do these thoughts make you feel? What will you say to God about His enjoyment – yes, enjoyment – of your prayers. The fact that you pray to Him shows Him you love Him. Tell Him how much you love Him today – show Him by the lifting of your hands. Make a note in your journal of how this time with Him has made you feel.

May God bless you as you spend time with Him today, expressing your love for Him.

About Mandy Hackland

My love in life is to encourage others to deepen their relationship with God. I write devotional material, stories and small group studies with that in mind. I live in South Africa and also love spending time in the bush, bird watching and walking. I have moved to the coast and am enjoying the green spaces and beautiful vistas that surround me, reminding me of God's grace every day.
