"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 and hear us today; cleanse us from every sin and set us free. Amen!"
Commentator Paul Harvey aired this prayer on his radio program, "The Rest of the Story,"
Remember when love of God, family and country were what made us tick. What happened to us? How did we get our priorities so messed up in such a short time. We are headed for becoming a secular society if we don't stop and turn it around now. No one recognizes sin for what it is anymore. I am sure we will get past this financial crisis we are in but the spiritual breakdown needs more than a quick fix. It takes a revival in the hearts of our people. Let's pray for a revival together.
There's a ring around the moon tonight And chilling wind But I don't have to be afraid Cause we're old friends
There's a heartbeat of our Mother Earth And it's so deep within Oh, and I'm never short of company Cause we're old friends
So let it snow 'til it's ten feet deep Let the mist roll in 'Til I am too blind to see Let the waters rise Encircling me Old Friends -- we'll always be And Heaven is a perfect place At the journey's end Oh and I'm looking forward to that day Cause we're old friends
I am a prayer warrior on a prayer chain and I am amazed right now, how many of the requests for prayer all get down to the same three. They need healing for themselves or for someone they know or love. They need financial help. It seems everyone is having a hard time right now, making ends meet. They want a relationship restored. There are not as many request for salvation for their friends and family as I would expect.
I ask, Dear Lord that you lay it on people's hearts to care about the salvation of their family and friends. I know our daily trials are getting us down right now, but I pray we don't lose sight of the most important prayer of all. The prayer for the lost. I pray for all the families who read my post Father, that their loved ones will find their way home before it's too late. Save them Lord, bring them into the fold. I ask this in the name of Jesus. Amen.
