A Pastor With Guts

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 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
por
nography 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.  
Amen!
