The people of God in times past
would light candles at the altar,
burn the daily incense offerings,
and offer sacrifices to You in the tabernacle.
May we today as Your people
light our lives in worship before You,
lift our prayers to You like incense,
and offer spiritual sacrifices of praise to You.
Be glorified, O God, above the heavens
and let Your glory shine over all the earth.
Receive glory and honor in our worship
even as You inhabit the praises of Your people.
[This is part of a series of prayers for Sunday worship preparation that begins here.]
