PAUL HARVEYS   ON- AIR
PRAYER

‘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
today; cleanse us from every sin and Set us free.
      Amen!’
