Intercession



Small and hidden away, an intercessor 
prays for you. She rings the bells of 
heaven with her voice. Let your goodness 
be seen. Speak. Sing. Praise. Awaken. 

A whisper. A scream. 

Prayers are like lightning, shots in 
the dark, arrows into the heart of what 
separates us. They are a child's voice interrupting the disputes of adults. 
We have many disputes, our two lands, 
don't we? All of them are foolish. 

Suddenly, a wave roars this way, the 
sweeping move of every ocean, all at 
once from all directions. It is a shout 
to her whisper, a hush to her scream, 
and then she sees. She is praying for 
you, but you are praying for her.

  6. I agree that disputes between countries is foolish. But it seems that men just must spend money on war.

  7. I believe there is the heart of an intercessor in all of us. What a different world this would be if we all prayed:)
