THE KANSAS SENATE LEGISLATURE
This prayer was actually spoken before
the Kansas State Legislature.
When minister Joe Wright was asked to open the new session of the Kansas
Senate, everyone was expecting the usual generalities, but what they
heard instead was a stirring prayer, passionately calling our country to
repentance and righteousness.
The response was immediate. A number of legislators walked out during
the prayer in protest. In six short weeks, the Central Christian Church
had 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 the prayer from India, Africa and Korea.
Commentator PAUL HARVEY aired the prayer on the rest of the story on the
radio and received a larger response to this program than any other he
has ever aired!!
Heavenly Father, we come before you today to ask Your forgiveness and to
seek Your direction and guidance. We know Your Word says, "Woe on those
who call evil good," but that's exactly what we have done. We have lost
our spiritual equilibrium and reversed our values.
We confess that:
We have ridiculed the absolute truth of Your Word and called it
We have worshipped other gods and called it multiculturalism.
We have endorsed perversion and called it an alternative lifestyle.
We have exploited the poor and called it the lottery.
We have neglected the needy and called it self-preservation.
We have rewarded laziness and called it welfare.
We have killed our unborn children and called it a choice.
We have shot abortionists and called it justifiable.
We have neglected to discipline our children and called it
We have abused power and called it political savvy.
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
Search us, O 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 to the center of Your will. I ask it in the name of
Your Son, the living Savior, Jesus Christ. Amen.
With the Lord's help, may this prayer sweep our nation and
wholeheartedly become our desire so that we again can be called a
Christian nation that fears the Lord! PLEASE SHARE THIS WITH OTHERS
