Considering our economic trouble, shrinking churches, and loss of political influence – now is the time for prayer. The Southern Baptist Commission For National Revival (SBCNR) has issued the following prayer.
All Southern Baptists Churches are encouraged to read this prayer aloud at 11:10 AM EST on Sunday 15 March 2009. This national harmony of prayer will certainly turn back the tide of judgement now threatening our nation. You can download a PDF bulletin insert from the SBCNR website.
SBC Prayer For National Revival
Lord, we thank you that we are not like other men,
non-religious, Roman Catholics, liberal Protestants,
or even like this blogger.
We never drink wine. We stay away from gays.
We shun the apostle’s creed. We contend for the faith of our fathers
(except that part about the colored people.)
We build posh buildings in your name.
We always vote right. We feast twice a week.
We give Jesus a tithe of all that our churches get.
We ask for your blessing. We seek your protection.
We ask that you humble those people and heal our land.
