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 sin and set us free. Amen!' With the Lord's help, may this prayer sweep over our nation and wholeheartedly become our desire so that we once again can be called 'One nation under God!'
Please know I say this in all gentleness.This prayer is not Billy Graham's.It is a good prayer and I do not wish in any way to take away from it nor from Brother Graham. I also received it via email a while ago. I always check this stuff because I believe we need to be just as careful to be truthful in things we email as we do in things we say.I suppose I also wonder why, some where along the line, some one decided that the person this truly belongs to was not important enough to receive the credit.

Mary, Thank you for the correction and I apologize for passing on a prayer that I received from a sister of integrity that I had believed to be Billy Graham's prayer. Mike
Under the circumstances I'm going to lock this thread. Kind Regards,Robert
