Psalms 141:1-2

"O Lord, I call to You.
May my prayer be set before You like incense."

God shapes the world by prayer. Prayers are deathless. The lips that uttered them may be closed in death, the heart that felt them may have ceased to beat, but the prayers live before God, and God's heart is set on them and prayers outlive the lives of those who uttered them; outlive a generation, outlive an age, and outlive a world.

E. M. Bounds

Nice post Bethany. I like the quote and truly how important it is to pray. My Dad has said before, Prayers that my Mom had prayed for me are still being answered even now when she has been gone for several years. Thanks for the little thought.

Love you, Mindy

I don't think we have any kind of grasp of the value and extent of the results of our prayers. Enjoyed the quote, and love the picture! :)

Great post, Bethany! This is so true! Sometimes when we pray, we just have to realize that it may be years before God answers it, but we just have to trust that He will. Great picture too!
