Devote Yourself to Prayer for God’s Kingdom – Revelation 8:1-6

8 When he opened the seventh seal, there was silence in heaven for about half an hour. (2) I saw the seven angels who stand before God, and there were given to them seven trumpets. (3) Then another angel, one who had a golden censer, came and stood by the altar. He was given much incense that he was to mix with the prayers of all the saints, and offer it on the golden altar which was before the throne. (4) The smoke of the incense, together with the prayers of the saints, ascended to the presence of God from the angel’s hand. (5) Then the angel took the censer, filled it with fire from the altar, and hurled it to the earth; there followed peals of thunder and rumblings and flashes of lightning and an earthquake. (6) The seven angels who had the seven trumpets now prepared to sound them.
