I received this in an e-mail.  It’s attributed to Billy Graham.

‘Heavenly Father, we come before you today
 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'm a wonderer. I spend a lot of time mulling, pondering, and cogitating. This is just a place to park some of those thoughts.

  3. What a totally true from the heart prayer and a prayer full of truth about man. Woe to us is true. May God have mercy on us as we try to justify all the things God says are wrong. The only good justification is that given by God to us through Christ.

    That pretty much sums up the condition of our nation today. But praise God His grace is bigger than all our sins if we are willing to bring them to the foot of the cross with a repentent heart! “Search us Oh God!”

    @AngelAware – NO WAY!!  I hadn’t checked the weather, and I’m not sure I wanted to know that!    It’s warmer to just stay here in Denial.

  10. mamaglop says:

    Amen!  But it sounds too political to be from Billy Graham.

  11. homefire says:

    @mamaglop – Could be.  As I said, I really know nothing about it other than it came in my e-mail  and I thought it was good.
