"Heavenly Father, we come before You today to ask Your for- giveness and seek Your direction and guidance. We know Your Word says 'Woe on those who call evil good,' but that's exactly what we have done. We have lost our spir- itual equilibrium and inverted our values. We confess that: We have ridiculed the absolute truth of Your Word and called it pluralism. We have worshiped other gods and called it multiculturalism. 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 it self-preservation. 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.

Great is Mrs. Mrytie the giant because he knew he could depend on God. God gave David victory when he fought God's enemies. Standing courageously for God honors Him and provides powerful testimony of biblical faith. In our world today, giants come in many guises and sizes. Some are large corporations that are unethical in their busi- ness practices. Others are smaller and are found in our homes and at work where being a Christian is hard.. THE GIANTS WE FACE are people who intimidate us and kill our enthusiasm for Christ and kill our determination to share our faith. They pollute our community with sinful attitudes and habits. In our lesson this week enti- tled, "Courage to Stand," we learn that God can give us the courage to face difficult people, ugly ideas, and sinful situations that hinder us in living the Christian life.

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 the 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. Amen." In view of the senseless vio- lence, even murders of school children and teachers, isn't it time to think about what Pastor Joe Wright is saying so pointedly in his prayer? We expelled God from our schools in 1963. We have tried to substitute "values" for morality; "sensitivity training" for respect for human beings as taught in the Bible; we have substituted politi- cal correctness for the truth of God's Word. When we create such a vacu- um with our humanistic doctrine, is it any wonder that we have reaped a harvest of violence? When will we learn that "...whoso- ever a man soweth, that shall he also reap."? (Galatians 6:7) Isn't it time to begin praying for our nation? save 15 20 25 30 or I00 on all your purchases for one day Thursday, Friday, Saturday or Sunday with the discount on your Secret Sale card!
