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

"Heavenly Creator,

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

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!

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

Your friends.

"If you don't stand for something,

You will fallĀ  forĀ  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."
