An e-mail was sent to me by a customer who said this prayer was written by 93 year old Billy Graham. He added this note:
"With the Lord's help, may this prayer sweep over our nation so we once again can be called One nation under God!"
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 call 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 call it freedom of expression.
We have ridiculed the time honored values of our forefathers and call it enlightenment.
Search us, Oh God, and know our hearts today; Cleanse us from sin and set us free.
