THE PRAYER THAT SHOCKED THE WORLD

THE PRAYER THAT SHOCKED THE WORLD

 

When Pastor 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 anti-abortionists and called it justifiable.

 

We have neglected to discipline our children and called it building self-esteem.

 

We have terrorized the world and called the victims terrorists.

 

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. Amen!”
