Prayer for the USA

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
sin and set us free. Amen!

NOTE: This prayer circulated via e-Mail and was
credited to Billy Graham. However, according to Truth
or Fiction, Billy Graham was NOT the writer of this
prayer. Nevertheless, it is an excellent prayer.
