Prayer, 2001
Oil on canvas, 48 x 38

This painting represents the Church, the Bride of Christ, dressed in fine white linen, holding up to God a golden bowl of incense, representing the prayers of the redeemed. Her prayer to the Lord is “Thy Kingdom come.” In the background are the clouds of God’s judgment from which, by faith in Jesus Christ, she has been delivered.
