A Prayer to Get America Back – Awesome!
There was an interesting prayer given in a new Kansas session of their Senate. I received it in an email from my son. It passed on what happened when Minister Joe Wright was asked to open the new session with a prayer. But what they all heard was remarkable to say the least – Maybe a Godsend.
Here is the prayer:
Heavenly Father, we come before you today to ask your forgiveness and to seek your direction and
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.
I guess that just about says it all.
The next time someone says “God Bless America” ask yourself if they really mean it or are they just saying it to make themselves look like they are true patriots. But are they saying it because they are just in it for the money and votes.
I might add that when the prayer was underway, a number of the legislators walked out in protest. In just 6 short weeks, Reverend Wright’s church, the Central Christian Church, received over 5000 phone calls that were positive. Only 47 of those calls were negative. Only in America can this happen. The church is now receiving requests from all over the world, including India, Africa and Korea, asking for a copy of the prayer.
Please share this with all your friends on social media so as many Americans as possible get to see it. I will tweet it and also forward the link to my Facebook page.
Let the fact checkers find fault as to whether this happened! But what difference does it make, the prayer is absolutely right in the message. If it didn’t happen, that doesn’t mean it isn’t true!
