Daily Courage - September 28

from Day by Day with the Persecuted Church

Another angel, who had a golden censer, came and stood at the altar. He was given much incense to offer, with the prayers of all the saints, on the golden altar before the throne. (Revelation 8:3)

He had been in prison in Siberia for many years.

Those were years of suffering, torture, brainwashing.

After his release we spoke to him and asked, "What was the secret of your victory whilst you were in prison for so long?"

He pulled out a little notebook from his pocket. "This is the secret" he said. "These are the people who prayed for me while I was in prison. They sent me postcards and I kept their names. You have no idea how we depended on getting those postcards. They encouraged us and the other prisoners."

God hears our prayers when we pray.

Prayers for those who suffer.

Prayers for our families.

Prayers for our own problems.

Never stop asking. One day all will be revealed.

The prayers of the saints are kept by God. Yours as well.
