Prayer

April 11, 2007

It seems prayer still upsets some people. Please read….

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 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 speech and 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.”

If possible, please pass this prayer on to your friends “If you

don’t stand for something, you will fall for anything.”

Think about this: If you forward this prayer to everyone On your

email list, in less than 30 days it would be heard by The world.
