Hey everyone. So my mom forbids use of incense in our house because even though I foiled argument with a Bible verse, she thinks if I get into using incense ( I already use candles and she doesn't like it but allows it) and the like in my prayer that I'll turn into (exact quote) " a crazy person". My parents are from Egypt, I was born there and we moved when I was young (in the late 90s) AND my mom is pretty tolerant and relaxed. She's down to earth, kinda. So I'm basically asking with help on how to convince her to let me use incense. We have some frankincense but I want to get this . I would pay for it and everything. I am well acquainted with the outdoors and fires (and serving as an psaltos) so I'm not a) reckless b) inexperienced. This is my Bible verse:
For from the rising of the sun, even to its going down,My name shall be great among the Gentiles;In every place incense shall be offered to My name,And a pure offering;For My name shall be great among the nations,”Says the Lord of hosts.
Obviously I have to give obedience and honor to my parents as in the Ten Commandments. Here's the thing, we see eye to eye on just about everything. She says because of that, I should be grateful and let this one go. I say that she should extend that love a little further because it's for my prayer. I'll post about the problem with my parents and my prayer later, although that is resolved.
Pray for me!
