God loves prayer. Why wouldn’t He? It’s through prayer that His bride talks to Him, worships Him, and shows her devotion to Him. Just as a husband and wife spend hours together conversing, laughing, and communicating, so Jesus longs to do with us. To minimize the communication of a relationship is to simply disregard the most important aspect of that relationship. Relationships are about “relating” various aspects of ones thoughts, feelings, and emotions to another. Through this “relation”, understanding and love is given the seed bed to grow and mature.
In Revelation 8 we see the bride operating in this maturity. She has grown to a place of understanding and wholeheartedness toward her Beloved (Jesus). She doesn’t ask according to her own will, but according the desire of her Bridegroom. Her supplication doesn’t simply evoke emotion in her own heart but evokes emotion and response from heaven. Just like when a wife feels deep emotion and communicates those feelings towards her husband – he begins to feel the same and will do all that is in his power to vindicate her. Why? Because He loves her. He is jealous to see her justified and honored. This prayer ascending to Him is like sweet incense. He knows that she asks according to His desire. Just as He sacrificed His life for her, she now sacrifices her life for Him.
You have a Judge who is dedicated to seeing you honored and glorified. He will stop at nothing.
