“The Lord sees the good people and listens to their prayers.” 1 Peter 3:12
We live in a very loud world. To get someone’s attention is no easy task. He or she has to be willing to set everything aside to listen, turn down the music, turn away from the monitor, turn the corner on the page and set the book down. When someone is willing to set things aside to hear you, that’s a privilege, a rare one today.
So please understand that your prayers are so honored in heaven, to God they are precious jewels. The Bible says that your prayers are a delightful fragrance to the Lord. They rise all the way up to the throne of God. Imagine, your prayer on earth activates God’s power in heaven. Your prayers move God to alter events in the world. We may not understand the mystery of prayer; but we don’t need to. But this much is very clear, action in heaven begins when someone prays on earth.
