Billy Graham's Prayer For Our Nation
THIS MAN SURE HAS A GOOD VIEW OF WHAT'S HAPPENING TO OUR COUNTRY!
'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!'
Sounds a bit over simplistic to me, but then I've never heard anyone talking to god in anything other than over simplified language. I wonder if this reveals more about the mind of god, or the minds of believers?

Where are the Christian Principles?It is widely held that America was Founded upon Christian Principles, but what exactly are those principles? It is also agreed that the Founding Principles of the US are found in The Bill of Rights. In reading, again, those Rights I find done that reflect any...

If you could ask God just one question, what woud it be?I guess I just wonder when we put all of the materialistic stuff to the side, what really matters? If you had one shot to get an answer from God, what would you ask???

Do we pray to God simply for our 'birth reservation' for our next life?Is it true that those 'lucky' ones born in affluent societies pray to God for making sure that they are reborn as affluent again in their next life, and those 'not-so-lucky' ones born in 'lower' societies pray to God for making...
