Billy Graham's Prayer for the USA cuts to the heart of all our cultures

Revisionist Tendencies
I am grateful for the comment I have received which seems to put some doubt about whether Billy is the author of this prayer. Perhaps others can clarify. Still like the prayer though! Reminds me of the "Two Winds Prophecy", which because Derek Prince read it out at a conference, has been almost ascribed to him, but it came through another prophet.

I do not apologise for again posting something from this saint. He was the one God used to bring me to Himself.

Billy Graham's Prayer For Our Nation THIS MAN SURE HAS A GOOD VIEW OF WHAT'S HAPPENING TO OUR COUNTRY! Bonnie Morris sent this through by email.

Billy Graham--it never hurts to be a reminder!
Truth..........from a man the media has never been able to throw dirt on..amazing!!
He has certainly hit the "world" on the head!!

'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..'Think about this: If you forward this prayer to everyone on your e-mail list, in less than 30 days it would be heard by the world. (It's worth a try!)
One Nation Under God.

It's a great prayer but if you check out you will find a link to the real story.

Summary of the eRumor:
The text of a prayer said to be from Billy Graham and for the United States. Paul Harvey allegedly aired it on his radio program and got the greatest response of anything he's broadcast.

The Truth:
This prayer was not from Billy Graham but rather from a minister named Joe Wright who offered it in front of the Kansas State House in 1996.

Someone simply added Billy Graham's name to it and started circulating it in July, 2008.
