Paul Harvey 1965 – What I Would Do If I Were the Devil (video)

    Hello Maggie,

    What a brilliant post, thank you very much.

    I reminds me of the words of Pastor Joe Wright who gave a prayer for the opening session of the Kansas House of Representatives……this prayer saw several legislators walk out……this prayer was also aired on Paul Harvey and was overwhelmed with the positive response….the legislature received thousands of call with only about 50 out of 5 to 6,000 being negative….

    The text of Pastor Wright’s prayer is below……and when one looks around us today perhaps its time to start cleaning house……no wonder the islamists have such an easy time of it…….the Republic is little more than a derelict shell of its former self….with an absentee owner that can best be described as criminally indifferent and self absorbed…


    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 confess:

    We have ridiculed the absolute truth of Your Word and called it Pluralism.

    We have worshipped other gods and called it multiculturalism.

    We have endorsed perversion and called it alternative lifestyle.

    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.

    Guide and bless these men and women who have been sent to direct us to the center of your will. I ask it in the Name of Your Son, the living Savior, Jesus Christ.
