One nation under God

Published:

Billy Graham's Prayer For Our Nation


'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!'

We are the product of social engineering. We have to stop letting our values and morals be influenced by what's crammed down our throats. On a related note, I saw an AOL poll this weekend asking about CIA torture. 71% of 4000+ polled said torture was acceptable. Either the poll is false for social engineering purposes or we are in deep trouble as a civilization.

@ Rick "We are the product of social engineering."

Couldn't agree more ... we've been programmed how to behave like bots. The powers that be want us to embrace self destructive behavior so they can continue to control every aspect of our lives.

Thanks for the comments Rick & konane!! When a handfull of individuals can dictate to an entire nation what can be read & spoken in our schools, our judiciary, and our governmental system, something has to be done. These atheist's and other self rightious individuals are the beginning of the end of this great nation as we know it.

You know what kills me about the blogs here. Each time I sign on, someone has posted a fabrication. One day it's a forged birth certificate, the next it's a list of lies about what's in the health reform bill. Don't get me wrong. I agree with many of the statements made here by posters, although I'm often accused of being something I'm not. I just believe in discussing things rationally and you can't do that if you don't tell the truth. The internet seems to have changed all that.

This is not a real prayer. At least Billy Graham never wrote it or preached it.   If you want, I can give you the history behind it. However, it would be easier to just read this.

Thanks for the comment justexploring!! Read the snopes comment you posted, and you know what? It doesn't really matter to me who origionated this prayer, what does interest me is the content of what the prayer is trying to convey. In my personal opinion, we should all have serious concerns with what is spoken there no matter who origionally created it.
