I 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


"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 confess that we have ridiculed the absolute truth of Your Word and called

it Pluralism.
We have worshipped other gods and called it multiculturalism.
We have endorsed perversion and called it alternative lifestyle.
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
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
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 to the 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 six 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'll fall for everything".
