What We've Done...

Check out this prayer that was said by Minister Joe Wright at the opening of a session in the Kansas Senate. It's powerful.

"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

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

Search us, Oh, God, and know our hearts today; cleanse us from every sin and set us free.


  1. Thanks for your comment and encouragement on my last blog post. you really blessed me! Thanks you so much! :)

  2. That is an amazing prayer and I feel it is all true. I wonder what the reaction was. Sadly, he probably got boo-ed. I hope you have a terrific day!

    Hugs, Sharon
