A PRAYER to (of) a nation

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.
Guide and bless these men and
women who have been sent to
direct us to the center of Your will
and to openly ask these things in the
name of Your Son, the living Savior,
Jesus Christ.
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
everything."
~Based on an actual prayer by Rev.
Wright~
Isaiah 7:9 ~ …if you do not stand
firm in your faith, you will not stand
at all.
