Billy Graham's Prayer For Our Nation
THIS MAN SURE HAS A GOOD VIEW OF WHAT'S HAPPENING TO OUR COUNTRY!
'Heavenly Father, we come before you today to ask your forgiveness
seek your direction and guidance. We know Your Word says, 'Woe to
call evil good,' but that is exactly what we have done. We have
spiritual equilibrium and reversed our values. We have exploited the
and called it the lottery. We have rewarded laziness and called it
We have killed our unborn and called it choice. We have shot
and called it justifiable. We have neglected to discipline our
called it building self esteem. We have abused power and called it
politics. We have coveted our neighbor's possessions and called it
We have polluted the air with profanity and pornography and called
freedom of expression. We have ridiculed the time-honored values of
forefathers and called it enlightenment. Search us, Oh God, and
hearts today; cleanse us from every sin and Set us free. Amen!'
Commentator Paul Harvey aired this prayer on his radio program, 'The
the Story,' and received a larger response to this program than any
has ever aired. With the Lord's help, may this prayer sweep over our
and wholeheartedly become our desire so that we again can be called
nation under God..'
