This Pastor has guts!
Thought you might enjoy this interesting prayer given in Kansas at
the opening session of their Senate.
It seems prayer still upsets some people. When Minister Joe Wright was
asked to open the new session of the Kansas Senate, everyone was
expecting the usual generalities, but this is was they heard.
"Heavenly Father, we come before you today to ask your forgiveness and
to seek your direction and guidance. We know Your Word says, 'Woe to
those who call evil good,' but that is exactly what we have done.
We have lost our spiritual equilibrium and reversed our values.
We have exploited the poor and called it the lottery.
We have rewarded laziness and called it welfare.
We have killed our unborn and called it choice.
We have shot abortionists and called it justifiable.
We have neglected to discipline our children and called it building
We have abused power and called it politics.
We have coveted our neighbor's possessions and called it ambition.
We have polluted the air with profanity and pornography and called it
freedom of expression.
We have ridiculed the time-honored values of our forefathers and
called it enlightenment.
Search us, Oh, God, and know our hearts today; cleanse us from every
sin and set us free. Amen!"
The response was immediate. A number of legislators walked out during
the prayer in protest!
In 6 short weeks, Central Christian Church, where Rev. Wright is pastor,
logged more than 5,000 phone calls with only 47 of those calls
responding negatively. The church is now receiving international
requests for copies of this prayer from India, Africa, and Korea.
Commentator Paul Harvey aired this prayer on his radio program, "The
Rest of the Story," and received a larger response to this program
than any other he has ever aired.
With the Lord's help, may this prayer sweep over our nation and become
our desire so that we again can be called "one nation under God."
If possible, please pass this prayer on to your friends. "If you don't
stand for something, you will fall for everything." Think about this:
If you forward this prayer to everyone on your e-mail list, in less
than 30 days it would be heard by the world. How many people in your
address book will not receive this prayer? Do you have the guts to
pass it on?
