May my prayer be counted as incense before You. Ps 141. 2

In the early Church a reluctance to use incense during the Liturgy because of its associations with pagan idol worship, soon gave way to an intuition that it was a fitting way to show honor and praise and image the rising of prayer to the heavens.
