      If one visits the Russian Church why is the incense in
      use? The incense is placed in a censor with burning
      charcoal. It is swung during the service to represent
      the prayers of the faithful ascending into heaven. At
      the beginning of the Divine Liturgy the incense
      represents the gifts brought by the Magi to the Christ
      Child.

      This is a a little better answer .
