A pastor with guts

02 Nov

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 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.’

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?

Amen!
