Heavenly Father, we come before you
today to ask your forgiveness and seek your direction and guidance.
We know your Word says, "Woe to those
who call evil good," but that's exactly what we've done.
We have lost our spiritual equilibrium
and inverted our values.
We confess that we have ridiculed the
absolute truth of your Word and called it moral pluralism.
We have worshipped other gods and called
We have endorsed perversion and called
it an alternative lifestyle.
We have exploited the poor and called
it the lottery.
We have neglected the needy and called
We have rewarded laziness and called
We have killed our unborn and called
We have shot abortionists and called
We have neglected to discipline our
children and called it building esteem.
We have abused power and called it
We have coveted our neighbors' 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 O God and know our hearts
today; try us and see if there be some wicked way in us; cleanse us from
every sin and set us free.
Guide and bless these men and women
who have been sent here by the people of Kansas, and who have been ordained
by you, to govern this great state.
Grant them your wisdom to rule and
may their decisions direct us to the center of your will. I ask it in
the name of your son, the living savior, Jesus Christ.
