Altar of Incense represents the act of prayer, but the incense itself is the soul of that prayer. The quality of the incense will reflect in the aroma that it gives out while burning. The quality of prayer is more important than quantity. Incense is a compound according to the art of the perfumer. A compound is a mixture with several ingredients in its mix according to its mixture percentage. Likewise, the soul behind the prayer has its own mixture. It has a place for supplications, praise, thanksgiving and intercession. The soul consists of these things are mixed into a proper mixture according to the art of the perfumer. The art of perfumer represents the guidance of the Holy Spirit in prayer. He prays for us and He makes us to pray for different things by placing the burden for others. Holy Spirit should form the mix in our prayer. If it is not done so, then the quality of that incense may not be up to the mark. Whenever we pray, let us pray according to the leading of the Holy Spirit and it will be very powerful and meaningful.
