Distracted and Uninspired
Yes, I have been absent from my blog and writing. I am not busy. I have been distracted.
I can’t seem to focus my thoughts clearly here lately. I look at the screen and go blank and stare off into space, don’t know why but that’s just how it has been.
I received the following in an email today. I’m sure I’ve read it before but was again touched by its message and its truth, it seemed like a good substitute for something I’ve written to be something I’ve read.
The email gives credit to Billy Graham as the author, I will assume that this is true and also credit Rev. Graham.
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 itambition.
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 knowour hearts today; cleanse us from every sin and Set us free.
Commentator Paul Harvey aired this prayer on his radio program, ‘The Rest of the Story,’ and received a larger response to this program than any other he has ever aired. With the Lord’s help, may this prayer sweep over our nation and wholeheartedly become our desire so that we again can be called ‘One nation under God.’
“Search me, O God, and know my heart: try me, and know my thoughts: And see if there be any wicked way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.” – KJV
