Billy  Graham's Prayer For America


'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!'

Commentator  Paul Harvey aired this prayer on his radio program, 'The Rest of the  Story,' and received a larger response to this program than any  other he has ever aired. With the Lord's help, may this prayer sweep  over our nation and wholeheartedly become our desire so that we  again can be called 'One nation under  God..'
