The Incense of Prayer

Aaron must burn fragrant incense on the altar every morning when he tends the lamps. – Exodus 30:7

Have you ever considered combining incense or fragrant biblical oils into your prayer life? This is not a new practice. In fact, it goes all the way back to the time of Moses. The Lord instructed Moses in Exodus 30.

7 Aaron must burn fragrant incense on the altar every morning when he tends the lamps.

8 He must burn incense again when he lights the lamps at twilight so incense will burn regularly before the LORD for the generations to come.

34 Then the LORD said to Moses, “Take fragrant spices—gum resin, onycha and galbanum—and pure frankincense, all in equal amounts,

35 and make a fragrant blend of incense, the work of a perfumer. It is to be salted and pure and sacred.

36 Grind some of it to powder and place it in front of the ark of the covenant law in the tent of meeting, where I will meet with you. It shall be most holy to you.”

Burning incense was symbolic of the prayers being lifted up to God.1 I believe this Old Testament practice of prayers continually being lifted up to God is a principle for what God desires today – for we are the continuing generation of the priesthood of believers. Paul’s New Testament Letter to the Thessalonians supports this “Pray continually” (1 Thess 5:17).

For a period of time, I had the practice of burning frankincense oil in the morning. During my prayer time, my spirit goes deeper with the Lord. Other times, I have applied the Biblical Oil or Eleos with the similar results.

Regardless of what our life is like or how we feel about ourselves, God LOVES when we worship him. When we sing or just come before Him to be in His presence alone, the muck that’s stuck in our heart burns off by the Holy Spirit fire.

One of my favorite songs is “You Are Worthy of It All”. The lyrics are:

You are worthy of it all

You are worthy of it all

For from You are all things

And to You are all things

You deserve the glory.

Day and Night

Night and Day

Let incense arise

Day and Night

Night and Day

Let incense arise

Here’s a YouTube video of this song. You can begin worshipping now! It’s seven minutes long, but if you only have a few minutes, you can start the video at the three minute mark. It’s a powerful song of worship:

May we continue to be in an attitude of prayer and worship today and in the days ahead…and let the incense of our prayers arise.

Lent can be a good time to reflect on strained relationships and bring our resentments to Jesus. The essential oils in Eleos work in the emotional part of the brain to help facilitate the process of forgiveness. When we forgive others and ourselves, LOVE TRIUMPHS.
