A special prayer because the long way is the short cut

Billy Graham prayer
a 3rd grader's view of America...April 2012

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! — Billy Graham

Internet's only five-a-day blogger, leaving a trail for our son. This is about putting the spirit of Love at the center of your life. It may be God, Allah, Mohammed, Buddha, Yahweh, etc. For me, it's Jesus.

I first read this, thinking that the photo caption also applied to the prayer.
I thought, “Wow, this is some incredible 3rd grader!”
Then, I figured it out. Regardless, this is wisdom that should not be overlooked.
Have a blessed day, Brother!
