One Nation Under God....


Please read this prayer..it is so beautifully written and poignantly expresses the state of our country and world....


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. In Jesus Name, Amen!'


Rev. Billy Graham


The following scriptures are from Daniel 2:20-23: Daniel prayed this prayer after God revealed to him King Nebuchadnezzar's dream and the meaning of the dream. Daniel would have been put to death if he had not interpreted the dream, and not only interpret the dream but tell the King what he dreamed!


Praise be to the name of God for ever and ever; wisdom and power are His. He changes times and seasons; he sets up kings and deposes them. He gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to the discerning. He reveals deep and hidden things; he knows what lies in darkness, and light dwells with him. I thank and praise you, O God of my fathers: You have given me wisdom and power, you have made known to me what we asked of you, you have made known to us the dream of the king.


What a testimony to God's power and sovereignty to His faithful people. Rejoice and be glad in this!!
