A Pastor with Guts!

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 genialities, 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.


The church is now receiving International requests for copies of this prayer from India, Africa and Korea.
