And then there is the Ghost of Authority, who nibbles away at my confidence. By what authority do you speak of these thing? Good question. I can give you my bio which will help but probably won’t satisfy your bothersome questions. What gives you the confidence to take on this and all shadowy war?
These voices are my companions as I travel to Washington, where I will silently process with my torchlight or flashlight, trying to shine a little light. I know these voices really well. They show up every time. Occasionally they are successful and win their arguments. When they all cooperate and speak at once they can drive me to silence, not the good kind of silence that opens me to the light of God, the bad kind of silence that makes me depressed.
Even though I have witnessed the power of light to overcome real dangerous shadowy stuff for 38 years these little guys still take up a lot of my time.
So what do I want to ask you to do to support me? I know a call for prayer can be transforming and it can be a cop out. We have tried to listen to God in our preparations but I know that even that language can be infected with dishonesty. So I leave your support in your hands. Maybe you don’t have all these crazy voices hanging around to bother you. If you have the gift of prayer and know it down deep, pray that the Glory of God would be revealed. That is a very big prayer, big enough to cover all of us and our ghosts.
