Thought you might enjoy this interesting prayer given in KANSAS at the opening session of their Senate. It seems that 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 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 confess that:

We have ridiculed the absolute truth of Your Word and called it "Pluralism."
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 Speech."
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 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 6 short weeks, Central Christian Church, where Reverend 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..."

It sends chills up my spine each time I hear the truth proclaimed in public in this country. It is so noticable and it is so infrequent,but as you have said by the responses to such public professions of faith, we are the silient majority. Those who take their oppotunitees to do this do it without thought of it being brave or noble. They do not do it with that purpose. They know who gets the glory and you can hear it in their voice and see it in their face.
