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 what 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 confess that we have ridiculed the absolute truth of Your Word and call
it Pluralism.

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 self
esteem.

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
wholeheartedly become our desire so that we again can be called "one nation
under God."

There isn't much more crooked than a politician. They are a bunch of snakes and haven't got the backbone to admit what the preacher said was the truth.
