Prayer: In the Old Testament, giving a sacrifice was a common way of worship. An animal or bird was given to the priest to be offered for sin. It was something of value to the person. They gave it freely. When Christ came, He became the sacrificial lamb, offered to God as payment for the sins of the world. Now we can offer sacrifice of a broken and contrite heart. Psalm 51:17, Sacrifice is a matter of the heart. It is giving something of value to God. The lifting of our hands is like the evening sacrifice. Psalm 141:2. The ultimate gift and sacrifice to God is to give Him yourself as a living sacrifice. Be dedicated to Him. Romans 12:1 Sacrifice your time, your talents, your praise to God Who gave His only Son as a sacrifice for you. Joyfully, Joyce
