1 O LORD, I call upon you; hasten to me!
Give ear to my voice when I call to you!
2 Let my prayer be counted as incense before you,
and the lifting up of my hands as the evening sacrifice! – Psalm 141:1-2
Our prayers are as precious to God as the sacrifices of the Temple were in their time. They achieve much of the same results as well. Our prayers are a means of drawing near to God. By taking the time to approach the throne of grace, as we pray we are taking the opportunity to enjoy God’s presence. He will be listening when you pray. He will be near to you as you draw near to Him. Spend a little extra time with your heavenly Father today.
