  • Opening prayer at Kansas state senate

    I don't know if this is true, but it sounds good.

    quote:
    OPENING PRAYER - KANSAS STATE SENATE
    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 confess that:
    We have ridiculed the absolute truth of Your Word and called 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 ambition.
    We have polluted the air with profanity and pornography and called it freedom of speech.
    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 Reverend Wright is pastor, logged more than 5,000 phone calls with only 47of 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 "TheRest 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. Think about this: If you forward this prayer to everyone on your email list, in less than 30 days it would be heard by the world.

        It's also inappropriate to push a religious agenda on a LE forum. I'm sure there are Christian sites where such posts would be more appropriate.

          So what are you saying, that all cops are Godless athiests that will burn in hell, or, are you just posting to start another religion debate?

          From what I've seen here, most of the cops believe in God and would not find it inappropriate.

          I posted it to show that there may be some hope for the country yet. All the things said in that prayer, in my opinoin, are true.

                  Shrill, I hope you're kidding. If you aren't you just insulted lots of great people with your reply to Mike's question.

                    Yes I'm kidding. Mike's accusation was so far removed from what I was saying.

                      Or, you could always let us make that decision. I see nothing offensive escept that it belongs in Various Topics, not General.

                        As a matter of fact, that's where this is going since it's a discussion about religion.
