Direction from Above
Dear Friends, Gretchen Wilson, who I attend church with on a regular basis, sent me the following statement that was made by Minister Joe Wright who opened the new session of the Kansas Senate with the following prayer. I thought that whoever you are, if in fact you believe in God, you would appreciate these remarks. Sincerely, Jim Bordas
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
We have rewarded laziness and called it
We have killed our unborn and called it
We have shot abortionists and called it
We have neglected to discipline our
Children and called it building
We have abused power and called it
We have coveted our neighbor's possessions
and called it
We have polluted the air with profanity and
pornography and called it freedom of
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. 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.
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
"If you don't stand for something,
You will fall for anything."
Think about this: If you forward this
Prayer to everyone on your
E-mail list, in less than 30 days it
Would be heard by the entire world.
PRAISE THE LORD AND OPEN OUR MINDS."
