If you’re like me, you can’t watch the news without feeling grieved. My husband and I happened to be in Raleigh the evening of the Pride parade. We prayed for the city and for our Big God to reveal Himself to the supporters, the curious, and the deceived. On the way home God winked at us through a beautiful real rainbow!
Someone sent me Pastor Joe Wright’s prayer offered at the opening session of the Kansas Senate in 1996. It shook many of the hearers then. In light of our culture, it sounds even more radical now. Pausing a moment to pray it, or a prayer of your choice, is the best birthday gift we can offer America.
