We also take a moment here to ponder big and little. I took a picture of Tony standing by the very large door of the Illinois House of Representatives. We pondered for a moment this huge door to an authoritative room of “high ranking” elected officials, and this man, tiny in comparison, humbly laying a hand on this door and praying to the Lord. Where lies the power in the Kingdom of God? God spoke to us a lot about this. I can tell you that it was heart grabbing for me to see this man, my husband, with his small hand on this huge door, having a standing in heaven larger than the entire government of Illinois, and in the presence of a King. This “insignificant” man will shift atmospheres and change history by his words, because of Your promises in
Psalm 18. When our cry reaches Your ear… You shake the earth. Oh, God. You shake the earth at our cry.
God showed me who the big voices are because the intercessor changes history. Not the senators, not the representatives, not Congressmen or the governor. It’s the faithful intercessor, the 80 year old man sitting in the Senate gallery quietly praying out the names to the Lord of all the representatives and the senators. You hear the intercessors, Your warriors, the old and young alike, and You shake the earth. It’s the intercessors whose cry reaches Your ear in Psalm 18. It’s not the voters, the Speaker of the House, or the President of our country. America, hear me. It’s the intercessors.”
