A Pastor with GUTS!
Thought you might enjoy this
Prayer given in Kansas at
The opening session of their Senate.
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 have exploited the poor and called it
We have rewarded laziness and called it
We have killed our unborn and called it
We have shot abortionists and called it
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
The church is now receiving
International requests for copies of this prayer
From India, Africa and Korea .
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.'
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 entire world.
