A Prayer about Priorities

02b_Buffalo_Sattler_Theater_ll_130314_wblog“We have become technological giants, and spiritual and moral dwarfs. We are sophisticated in scientific progress and primitive in spiritual development.

“We are knowledgeable in the ways of the world and ignorant in the ways of God. We live as though man is the center of the universe and God a peripheral invention of pious enthusiasts.

“We are abundantly rich in material resources and abysmally poor in spiritual and moral capital.

“Dear God, help us get our act together before it is too late. In the name of Him who is the Way, the Truth, and the Life. Amen.”

~ Richard C. Halverson, in the Senate on May 2, 1984.
