Join us in Rusk today at noon as we attend the National Day of Prayer Rally. In addition to several area ministers who will pray for our nation and our schools, Pastor John Robinhawk, host of Talk Time on our sister station MyKTLU, will offer a prayer for the media. His Prayer is after the jump.
Lord, well over half of Americans believe that news stories are often inaccurate and tend to favor one side of an issue over another.
I pray that journalists across America will do their best to bring light where there is darkness and truth where there is falseness.
I ask You to strengthen and direct the will of all who write and shape the coverage of newspapers, television, radio, and magazines.
I pray that You would remove those who desire to report anything less than the truth and to be a service to humanity.
May You raise up those who are bold to confront evil and injustice, who reject the half-truths that deceive and the biased words that corrupt.
I ask You to promote those who will use the power of their words for good and who bring the respect and integrity of character that honors their profession.
Give wisdom, honesty, and courage to those who seek Your face and restore a righteous standard of journalism so that truth might prevail throughout our nation.
