Billy Graham 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!’

UMMMM…i happen to agree with some of his prayer, not with all of it but it was of interest and thought some of you might be as well.

Not Billy Graham’s prayer.

When people call on a god to guide them on moral issues, it is usually because they don’t like what is happening in regards to these moral issues.

But maybe, this god has already pointed us in the direction we are heading because caring for others through a welfare plan, choice over how we use our bodies, acceptance of alternative lifestyles and expression are all part of the evolutionary process that will make us better humans. 

Of course mistakes will be made along the way, but to suggest that we are worse now than under the time-honored values of our forefathers forgets all sorts of inequalities that are less evident today.
