When I first learned this verse, I searched to see if it meant what it seemed.  To me it is wonderful.  Even if I die, my prayers for loved ones left behind is still in God's protective hands. 

In the midst of the angels arose
Smoke of incense from golden bowls
Scent of perfume so sweet
Drifting around the throne seat

Seat of the Lamb who was slain
Forgiving, loving
For His death
Who is not to be blamed

What is the meaning of the golden bowls
From which the sweet perfume of incense arose
The answer is written in Revelation 5:8
The prayers of the saints is what it states

Whether alive or met our fate
God hears, keeps our prayers
Pray, it is never too late

Pray for loved ones, enemies, leaders on earth
Even for those who have not yet seen birth
For God remembers prayers for they have worth

Prayers of praise, thanks, sadness, weeping
Prayers are forever in safe keeping
When death has come and taken us away
Our prayers in the golden bowls will stay
