Invocation

A Prayer from the heart !

Opening prayer for the new session of the Kansas Senate by minister Joe Wright 
“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 what exactly what we have done.
We have lost our spiritual equilibrium and reversed our values.
We have ridiculed the absolute truth of your word and called it pluralism.
We have worshipped other Gods and called it multiculturalism.
We have endorsed perversion and called it alternative life style.
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 politics.
We have embezzled public funds and called it essential expenses.
We have institutionalised bribery and called it sweets of office.
We have coveted our neighbour’s possession and called it ambition.
We have polluted the air with profanity and pornography and called it freedom of expression.
We have ridiculed the time honoured the values of our forefathers and 
called it  enlightenment.  Search us O God, and know our hearts today, 
cleanse us from every sin and set us free”. Amen
... with the Lord’s help may this prayer sweep over the nation and wholeheartedly 
may we become One nation under God.
 
This earnest prayer, so true to our day can become the prayer of every nation
 and of every individual. Acknowledging our status before God is the need of the moment.
Our generous, merciful and loving Father will welcome us with open arms,
 instantly do that which is needful , desired by all and throw a banquet of new
 possibilities where His people as a family  will care and share the riches entrusted to them
 generously and joyfully.
Health foremost and Wealth of blessings to one and all.
 
 
A Prayer from the heart
*To the medical team at the frontline in heroic service to those hospitalised and 
Otherwise our sincere thanks and assurance of prayerful blessing to each of them and to their sacrificing families.
