This Pastor Has Guts.

It seems prayer still upsets some people. Please read....

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
We have polluted the air with profanity and pornography and
called it Freedom of speech and 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, Guide and bless these men and women who have been sent to direct us tothe center of Your will and to openly ask these things in the name of Your Son, the living Savior, Jesus Christ. 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."

If possible, please pass this prayer on to your friends "If you
don't stand for something, you will fall for anything."
