TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) _ A Christian group that ministers to Kansas lawmakers is seeking prayers for what it calls dark spiritual sections of the state.

The Capitol Commission says that southeast Kansas, Lawrence, north Johnson County and Kansas City, Kan., need extra prayer. The leader of the group says those areas were mentioned for their economic troubles, not for their political leanings.

The letter also asks for prayers for the governor, his staff, legislative leaders and the media.

The Kansas City Star reports (http://bit.ly/X2Wse8 ) representatives of Kansas, Kan., and Lawrence objected to letter, calling the characterization of their areas offensive and unbelievable.

The Kansas director of the Capitol Commission apologized if the wording offended anyone but denied the plea for prayer was focused on Democratic strongholds.
