A Pastor with Guts


A Pastor with GUTS!

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 


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 self esteem.. 

We have abused power and called it 


We have coveted our neighbor's possessions
and called it 
ambition . 

We have polluted
 the air with profanity and 
nography 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. 


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 . 

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 will fall for everything.'

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 world. 

How many people in your address book will 

not receive this
 prayer..... do you have the guts to pass it on
