Pastor has Guts!!

It seems prayer still upsets some people. Please read…
   

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 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 and 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."
 
 

                 If possible, please pass this prayer on to your friends "If you

                       don’t stand for something, you will fall for anything."
 
 

            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.
 
 

             How many people in your address book will not receive This

                         Prayer…..do you have the guts to pass it on?
 
 

                                                 I just did!

2 TOUGH QUESTIONS

Question 1:

If you knew a woman who was pregnant, who had 8 kids already, three who
were deaf, two who were blind, one mentally retarded, and she had
syphilis, would you recommend that she have an abortion?

Read the next question before looking at the response for this one.

Question 2:

It is time to elect a new world leader, and only your vote counts.
Here are the facts about the three candidates. Who would you vote for?

Candidate A.

Associates with crooked politicians, and consults with astrologist.
He’s had two mistresses. He also chain smokes and drinks 8 to 10 martinis a day.

Candidate B.

He was kicked out of office twice, sleeps until noon , used opium in
college and drinks a quart of whiskey every evening.

Candidate C

He is a decorated war hero. He’s a vegetarian, doesn’t smoke, drinks an
occasional beer and never cheated on his wife.

Which of these candidates would be our choice?

Decide first… no peeking, then scroll down for the response.

Candidate A is Franklin D. Roosevelt.
Candidate B is Winston Churchill.
Candidate C is Adolph Hitler.

And, by the way, on your answer to the abortion question:

If you said YES, you just killed Beethoven.

Pretty interesting isn’t it? Makes a person think before judging someone.

Wait till you see the end of this note! Keep reading..

Remember:

Amateurs…built the ark.
Professionals…built the Titanic

And Finally, can you imagine working for a company that has a little more
than 500 employees and has the following statistics:

* 29 have been accused of spousal abuse
* 7 have been arrested for fraud
* 19 have been accused of writing bad checks
* 117 have directly or indirectly bankrupted at least 2 businesses
* 3 have done time for assault
* 71 cannot get a credit card due to bad credit
* 14 have been arrested on drug-related charges
* 8 have been arrested for shoplifting
* 21 are currently defendants in lawsuits
* 84 have been arrested for drunk driving in the last year…

Can you guess which organization this is?

Give up yet?

It’s the 535 members of the United States Congress.

The same group that crank out hundreds of new laws each year designed to
keep the rest of us in line.

You gotta pass this on….2 TOUGH QUESTIONS
