Revelation 8 (Complete Jewish Bible (CJB))

1 When the Lamb broke the seventh seal, there was silence in heaven for what seemed like half an hour. Then I saw the seven angels who stand before God, and they were given seven shofars. Another angel came and stood at the altar with a gold incense-bowl, and he was given a large quantity of incense to add to the prayers of all God’s people on the gold altar in front of the throne. The smoke of the incense went up with the prayers of God’s people from the hand of the angel before God.

The people of God pray and God receives our prayers in heave.  Reading Revelations 8 : 1 – 4 I have come to the realisation that God is waiting for our prayers.  Look the Lamb broke the seventh seal, there was silence in heaven for what seemed like half an hour.  Was that the time God used to listen to your prayer?  Does it seem you are praying and nothing is coming out of your prayers?  Sometimes I pray and I wonder does God hear me.  Today I have come to realise God hears my prayers, God hears your prayers.  I believe Jesus and the angels bring our prayers before the Lord all the time.  We have so much going for us as Christian; we are the righteousness of God in Christ.  Let us not forget what the Lord Jesus has done for us.

May the Lord speak to you today in my blog and may you enjoy God’s presence in your life though your prayers.

It is for everyone the Lord our God calls to himself.” 40 Peter warned them with many other words. He begged them, “Save yourselves from the evil of today’s people!”
I say we are too caught up in our own little worlds, we believe that we are capable of so much and that when times are difficult then we call on the Lord Jesus.  When nothing happens and we do not receive answered prayers we lose hope and start looking for new ways to get out of the mess we find ourselves in.
In the International Children’s Bible we read that “change your hearts and lives and be baptized,”  the words that stood out for me is “change your hearts and lives.”  I have been thinking about these words.  Something m…
