Prayer of the Week: Revelation 8:4


Once again, you can earn one credit by reading the prayer of the week and answering a question. Submit your answer to both Father Andrew at oandrey(at)stlukeorthodox(d0t)com and myself at else10(at)gmail(d0t)com to receive the credit!


Prayer:

O righteous Father Jacob, Adornment of Atka and the Yukon Delta, You offered yourself as a living sacrifice To bring light to a searching people. Offspring of Russian America, Flower of brotherly unity, Healer of sickness and terror of demons: O Holy Father Jacob, Pray to Christ God that our souls may be saved. Amen.

Bible text: Revelation 8:4

And the smoke of the incense, with the prayers of the saints, went up before God out of the angel's hand.


Bible question:

What is the role of incense in heavenly worship?



Many thanks to Father Andrew Harrison of St Luke Orthodox Church in Palos Hills, Illinois, for providing this Bible study!
