After this I looked, and there before me was a great multitude that no one could count, from every nation, tribe, people and language, standing before the throne and before the Lamb. They were wearing white robes and were holding palm branches in their hands. 10 And they cried out in a loud voice:
“Salvation belongs to our God,
who sits on the throne,
and to the Lamb.”
11 All the angels were standing around the throne and around the elders and the four living creatures.They fell down on their faces before the throne and worshiped God, 12 saying:
Praise and glory
and wisdom and thanks and honor
and power and strength
be to our God for ever and ever.
Amen!” (Revelation 7:9-12 NIV)
In this passage we see the martyrs who have been killed in the tribulation, coming “before the throne and before the Lamb” where they praise Him for His salvation. There praise apparently induces the angels and elders and four living creatures to join them in praising God. I wonder if our prayers of praise into heaven have the same effect. Do the angels join in every time we send a prayer of praise to God?
