My prayer ladder

I currently own a cleaning business, and I always bring along a stepladder so that I can reach high places that need cleaning. But that’s not the only ladder I have with me. I also carry a spiritual “prayer ladder.”

Such a ladder was described in the biblical account of Jacob when he came to rest at nightfall after fleeing from his brother, Esau, whom he had badly wronged (see Genesis 28:10–15). In the story, Jacob has a dream: “And behold a ladder set up on the earth, and the top of it reached to heaven: and behold the angels of God ascending and descending on it” (verse 12). God then gives Jacob reassurances as to his stature and the meaning of his life.
