The Brave Preacher

Sent to me by a friend and I thought some of you would enjoy reading it.

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 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 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 .
