An email from a friend

A Pastor with GUTS!

Thought you might enjoy this interesting prayer given in Kansas at the
opening session of their

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
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
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.'

Can I get an AMEN!!!!!!! This world has taken a serious turn for the worse. Where are the morals? If it is this bad now, what will it be like for our Children's children?
