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!" From Minister down in Kansas, opening up congress with a pray!
This was on Paul Harvey the other day and I was shocked and proud that somebody prayed that outloud and for the opening of the congress! This stroke a cord with me because it seems lately nobody really cares what happens to the world. Everybody wants to take the word GOD out of money, out of the courts, and out of the world. I know I won't let the happen. It is just weird that America was built for religious freedom but now if you are religious then that is wrong! I think everybody should look back in their history books and read why America was founded! I think if we don't start believing in GOD or letting Him lead us then something major will happen!!
