AN INTERESTING PRAYER

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 called it pluralism;   We have
worshipped other gods and called it multiculturalism;   We have
endorsed perversion and called it alternative lifestyle;   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 we ask it 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 "The Rest of the Story" on the radio 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'll
fall for everything."
