A Worthy Prayer

Written by Rev. H. Bergsma
When Pastor Joe Wright was asked to open the new session of the Kansas Senate, everyone was expecting the usual politically correct generalities. But, what they heard instead was a stirring prayer, passionately calling his country to repentance and righteousness. The response was immediate and a number of legislators walked out during the prayer. In six short weeks, the Central Christian Church (Wichita, KS) had logged more than 5,000 phone calls, with only 47 of those calls responding negatively. Commentator Paul Harvey aired the prayer on the radio and received a larger response to this program than any other program he has ever aired. The Central Christian Church is now receiving international requests for copies of this prayer from India, Africa, and Korea.

Like DanielÕs prayer, pastor Joe's prayer speaks of personal repentance and humbling under GodÕs almighty power, for the need of the nation to repent for the sins of immorality, abortion, etc. It is an encouragement and challenge for each of us to stand for the truth of the Gospel whenever the Lord gives us the opportunity.
