Not all is gloom and doom.  At the end of the slideshow I included some that I thought expressed these verses:

Let my prayer be set forth as incense before thee; The lifting up of my hands as the evening sacrifice.” Psalm 141:2

“And the smoke of the incense, with the prayers of the saints, went up before God out of the angel’s hand.” Revelation 8:4
