THE POWER OF INFLUENCE - A PASTOR WITH GUTS !




Life's truth is like water on a rock..no matter, how long it takes, it will penetrate through the rockest of rocks!...the post below struck a chord in me..in these days where everyone wants to be politically correct..This is a refreshing change, God's way!..I pray we will be True Godly change agents..speaking the truth, no matter what! I received it in a mail forwarded by a friend..and it made my blog!..Sobering Truth!


A Pastor with GUTS!

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 genealities, 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. 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.'

Please pass this prayer on to your friends. 'If you don't stand for something,
You will fall for everything.'

OMG!That was not just a prayer, it was a message. I wonder how people would dare say that religion (with subtile emphasis on and particular reference to christianity) is a drawback to man and society if not that they want to live a lawless and licentious life. Please i mean the practice of true religion and not the abuse of it.
If the whole of creation itself is sustained by laws,why not man.

May God help this generation.
