From long ago, the sweet smelling aroma of incense has been connected to prayers coming before God's throne. Incense is a fitting symbol for prayer, but, to be effective, it has to be finely mashed down, it has to be detailed, finely mixing ingredients together to be a sweet aroma before God. Part one of this series focuses on "Our Father in heaven, hallowed be thy name." We must be aware of the majesty of His presence, the privilege it is to go before Him as our loving Father.
