Are there some people who have more clout with God than others? When joining people in a community of prayer, are there certain people who have more influence with God than others?
Moses seemed to have more influence than others in his day when he prayed for the deliverance of Israel. The same thing can be said about Abraham with respect to Sodom.
Are there people to whom God listens more attentively than others? Better, are there people who have the favor of God more than others?
“The prayer of a righteous man can accomplish much” (Jam. 5:16).
What does that mean? Does it speak to divine clout?
If there is such a thing as divine clout, how does that relate to grace?
Finally, if there is anyone out there with this extra measure (or treasury) of clout, can you tell them send some prayers my way? Direct them to my mother’s condition. If need be, I can make an argument that will put Moses’ argument to shame for the effectiveness of divine healing in this case. I really can! I will use this blog to spead the news and the whole world can rejoice in God’s grace.
