Joe Wright was asked to open the new session Of the Kansas Senate      

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 confess
that we have ridiculed the absolute truth of Your Word and
call it Pluralism.

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
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.
Guide and bless these men and women who have been sent to
direct us to the center of Your will and to openly ask these
things in the name of Your Son,
the living Savior, Jesus Christ, 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.

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."
