Sweet Hour of Prayer


When minister Joe Wright was asked to open the new session of the Kansas Senate, everyone was expecting the usual politically correct generalities, but what they heard instead was a stirring prayer, passionately calling our country to repentance and righteousness. The response was immediate.

A number of legislators walked out during the prayer in protest. In six short weeks, the Central Christian Church had logged more 5,000 phone calls with only 47 of those calls responding negatively.

The church is now receiving international requests for copies of prayer from India, Africa and Korea. Commentator PAUL HARVEY aired the prayer on his The Rest of the Story radio broadcast and received a larger response to this program than any other he has ever aired !!


Heavenly Father, we come before you today to ask Your forgiveness and to seek Your direction and guidance. We know Your Word says,"Woe on those who call evil good," but that's exactly what we have done. We have lost our spiritual equilibrium and reversed our values. We confess that:

We have ridiculed the absolute truth of Your Word,
and called it

We have worshiped other gods,
and called it

We have endorsed perversion,
and called it

We have exploited the poor,
and called it

We have neglected the needy,
and called it

We have rewarded laziness,
and called it

We have killed our unborn children,
and called it

We have shot abortionists,
and called it

We have neglected to discipline our children,
and called it

We have abused power,
and called it

We have coveted our neighbor's possessions
and called it

We have polluted the air with profanity and pornography,
and called it

We have have ridiculed the
time-honored values of our forefathers,
and called it

Search us, O God, and know our hearts today;
cleanse us from every sin and set us free.
Guide and bless these men and women
who have been sent to direct us to the center of Your will.
I ask it in the name of Your Son, the living Savior, Jesus Christ.


What awesome insight !!!
With the Lord's help, may this prayer sweep our nation
and wholeheartedly become our desire so that we again
can be called a Christian nation that fears the Lord!

Sweet hour of Prayer"

(The following prayer was written by a 12-yr. old girl in Boston)

Now I sit me down in school,
Where praying is against the rule.

For this great nation under God,
Finds mention of Him very odd.

If Scripture now the class recites,
It violates the Bill of Rights.

Anytime my head I bow,
Becomes a federal matter now.

The law is specific; the law is precise;
Praying out loud is no longer nice.

Praying aloud in a public hall
Upsets those who believe in nothing at all.

In silence alone we can mediate
And if God should get the credit - great!

They are bringing their guns;
I don't dare bring my Bible,

To do so, might make me liable.
So, now Oh Lord, this plea I make;

Should I be shot in school,
My soul please take.



What We Need!

Mary had a little lamb,
His fleece was white as snow.
And everywhere that Mary went,
The Lamb was sure to go.
He followed her to school each day,
T'wasn't even in the rule.
It made the children laugh and play,
To have a Lamb at school.

And then the rules all changed one day,
llegal it became;
To bring the Lamb of God to school,
Or even speak His Name.
Every day got worse and worse,
And days turned into years.
Instead of hearing children laugh,
We heard gun shots and tears.
What must we do to stop the crime,
That's in our schools today?

Let's let the Lamb come back to school,
And teach our kids to pray!

Life is changed, not taken away.
To live in hearts we leave behind is not to die.
