A PASTOR WITH GUTS !!! ~ shared by Lorie Hardy



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!



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.'
