A Prayer for our Nation

Rev. Billy Graham

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!


 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!'
