Billy Graham's Prayer

I'm not a big fan of e-mail forwards, but this one struck a cord with me.
Take a quick minute to read over it and see if you agree his prayer rings true.

Billy Graham's prayer aired by Paul Harvey...........................
'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.'

That is exactly why I love "slow fade" by casting crowns. I'm not saying that I'm free of sin. I am "set free" from sin.through our lord and savior.
But NO ONE is *immune* to the things we are subject to from this world.
It's a slow process and if we do not protect our minds, hearts and families we are aligning ourselves up with the world's view. Thank you Jesus for being our rescue! Speaking of which please pray for me {and family}today. I don't want to ellaborate but just pray hard.
