      >> << A Lil Prayer from Kansas
      >>
      >> 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 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.
      >>
      >> We ask this 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.
      >> >>
