Fragrant Prayer

Written by Lisa DeVinney on . Posted in poetry

What does it mean to pray in Jesus ‘ name?
“It means my words are run through the oil bath
and are wet with His fragrance.”
~ Sue Ferenczy (response at Bible study)
Lord, may the words I speak to Thee in prayer
Be fragrant as the perfume-scented air
That rises from the mention of Thy Son,
Whose Name is like an ointment poured upon
The altar, there before Thy righteous throne.
For in His Name I pray; in His, alone.
“Because of the fragrance of your good ointments,
Your name is ointment poured forth…”
Song of Solomon 1:3 NKJV
