Luk 9:28
And it came to pass about an eight days after these sayings, he took Peter and John and James, and went up into a mountain to pray. [KJV]

Prayer has been likened to incense. (See Rev 5:8). Incense are traditionally spices that are burnt to produce sweet fragrance to make sacrifices acceptable to deities. We see much of this in the Old Testament. It is symbolic of effective prayers ascending to Heaven. Just like in the natural, a good fragrance draws attention of people, prayers draw attention of spirits. For instance, when it was time for Zechariah to burn incense in the temple in Luk 1:8-13, an angel appeared to him. And in our main text, as the Lord was praying, Moses and Elijah came to Him. There are many other instances where the burning of incense attracted divine visitation.

Even when we do not physically notice spiritual presence, we should be aware that we are not alone when we pray. Heb 12:.22-24  gives us an idea of the company we keep when we pray. It says 'But ye are come unto mount Sion… and to an innumerable company of angels, to the general assembly and church of the firstborn, which are written in heaven, and to God the Judge of all, and to the spirits of just men made perfect, And to Jesus the mediator of the new covenant...

Prayer is the master key that unlocks the supernatural. Prayer is one way we believers- though human, participate in the divine nature.

Do not wait for a crisis, start learning to tarry in prayer today.

Go into today seeking the opportunity within your schedule to pray effective kingdom prayers. 

Prayer: Ask the Holy Spirit to help you pray. Tell Him to help you find the time, place and most of all the passion to pray effectively.
