Prayer From Joe Wright
When minister Joe Wright
was asked to open the new session of
the Kansas Senate,
everyone was expecting the usual politically-correct
generalities, but what they heard
instead was a stirring prayer, passionately calling our country to repentance and
righteousness. The response was immediate. A number of legislators walked out
during the prayer in protest. In six short weeks, the Central Christian Church had
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 the prayer from India,
Africa and Korea.
Commentator PAUL HARVEY aired the 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!!
Heavenly Father, we come before you today to ask Your forgiveness
and to seek Your direction and guidance. We know Your Word says,
"Woe on Those who call evil good," but that's exactly what we have done.
We have lost our spiritual equilibrium and reversed our values. We
* We have ridiculed
the absolute truth of Your Word and called
it pluralism. * We have worshiped other gods and called it
* We have endorsed perversion and called it an alternative lifestyle.
* We have exploited the poor and called it the lottery.
* We have neglected the needy and called it self-preservation.
* We have rewarded laziness and called it welfare.
* We have killed our unborn children and called it a choice.
* We have shot abortionists and called it justifiable.
* We have neglected
to discipline our children and called it
* We have abused power and called it political savvy.
* 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, O 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. I ask it in the name of Your Son,
the living Savior, Jesus Christ. Amen.
What awesome insight !!!
With the Lord's help, may this prayer sweep
our nation and wholeheartedly become our desire so that we again can
be called a Christian nation that fears the Lord!
Please send this
prayer to as many of your Christian friends as you
can. Let us all help to get the Lord back into our lives and most
importantly into the lives of our children & grandchildren.
"If you don't stand for something, you'll fall for everything."
