BOLD Christian Leader ---He Is NOT AFRAID to Name THE NAME!!!!!!!!!

Look for the 'Rest of the Story'!! below the prayer...
This a a Christian leader who is NOT AFRAID!!! of Naming the NAME ABOVE ALL NAMES!!!!! JESUS CHRIST >>>>>>>>>>>

When Minister Joe Wright was asked to open
the new session of the Kansas House, 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.
I ask in the name of your Son, The Living Savior, Jesus Christ

NOTICE-He said the words that every pastor is requested NOT to say at the end of a 'public' prayer:
I ask in the name of your Son, The Living Savior, Jesus Christ

The REST OF THE STORY---
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 "The Rest of the Story" on the radio and received a larger response to this program than any other he has ever aired.

I would love to have this man speak at a Lutherans for Life event!!!

"A number of legislators walked out during the prayer in protest."

Like he sprinkled holy water on them. Here's to hoping they didn't return.
