                Kansas Senate Prayer
                              2 April 2013

Perhaps you might enjoy this interesting prayer given in Kansas at the opening session of their Senate approximately two decades ago!   It seems prayer managed to upset some people, both then and now!  When Christian 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 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.
.
Those who managed to gain some small understanding as to the magnitude of the sins committed by this liberal and political correct empire, will discover that this prayer touches upon a good number of them.  Log onboard the other Newsletter WebPages by clicking at the top of this page, where it says CSA News, then click on the title of your choice listed at the bottom.  Let there be a new birth of freedom; liberate and restore the Confederate States of America!

         Quotation
.
“I lament that we waste so much time and money in punishing crimes and take so little pains to prevent them…we neglect the only means of establishing and perpetuating our republican forms of government; that is, the universal education of our youth in the principles of Christianity by means of the Bible; for this Divine Book, above all others, constitutes the soul of republicanism.” “By withholding the knowledge of [the Scriptures] from children, we deprive ourselves of the best means of awakening moral sensibility in their minds.” ... Benjamin Rush
