"Prayer of Repentance"
by Pastor Joe Wright before the Kansas Senate

Prayer of Repentance

KANSAS SENATE OPENING PRAYER
January 23, 1996 by Pastor Joe Wright

When Minister Joe Wright of Central Christian Church was asked to open the new session of the Kansas Senate, everyone was expecting the usual generalities, but this is what they heard:

The Prayer of Repentance

Heavenly Father, we come before you today to ask your forgiveness and seek
your direction and guidance.

We know your Word says, "Woe to those who call evil good," but that's exactly
what we've done.

We have lost our spiritual equilibrium and inverted our values.

We confess that we have ridiculed the absolute truth of your Word and called it moral pluralism.

We have worshipped other gods and called it multiculturalism.

We have endorsed perversion and called it an alternative lifestyle.

We have exploited the poor and called it the lottery.

We have neglected the needy and called it self-preservation.

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 esteem.

We have abused power and called it political savvy.

We have coveted our neighbors' 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 O God and know our hearts today; try us and see if there be some
wicked way in us; cleanse us from every sin and set us free.

Guide and bless these men and women who have been sent here by the people of
Kansas, and who have been ordained by you, to govern this great state.

Grant them your wisdom to rule and may their decisions direct us to the center of your will. I ask it in the name of your son, the living savior, Jesus Christ.

Amen.


This was the text of the original prayer delivered January 23, 1996 by Pastor
Joe Wright to the Kansas House of Representatives in Topeka.

The response was immediate.

A number of legislators walked out during the prayer in protest.
In 6 short weeks, Central Christian Church, where Reverend 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..."

God Bless courageous and wise Joe Wright.

With the Lord's help, may this prayer sweep over our nation.

My our own daily prayers be fervent and faithful so that we can continue to be called "One Nation Under God" and receive God's blessing.

Prayer is our most important and effective weapon against Satan.
