NEW SCHOOL PRAYER

From the Mouths of Children...How We Should Listen!


Since the Pledge of Allegiance and The Lord's Prayer are not allowed in most public schools anymore because the word "God" is mentioned....a kid in Arizona wrote the following...A  NEW School Prayer. I thought it was right to the point.

Now I sit me down in school, 
Where praying is against the rule. 
For this great nation under God, 
Finds mention of Him very odd. 
If Scripture now the class recites, 
It violates the Bill of Rights. 
And anytime my head I bow, 
Becomes a Federal matter now. 
Our hair can be purple, orange or green, 
That's no offense; it's a freedom scene. 
The law is specific, the law is precise
Prayers spoken aloud are a serious vice. 
For praying in a public hall, 
Might offend someone with no faith at all. 
In silence alone we must meditate, 
God's name is prohibited by the state. 
We're allowed to cuss and dress like freaks, 
And pierce our noses, tongues and cheeks. 
They've outlawed guns, but FIRST the Bible
To quote the Good Book makes me libel. 
We can elect a pregnant Senior Queen, 
And the 'unwed daddy,' our Senior King. 
It's "inappropriate" to teach right from wrong, 
We're taught that such "judgments" do not belong. 
We can get our condoms and birth controls, 
Study witchcraft, vampires and totem poles. 
But the Ten Commandments are not allowed, 
No word of God must reach this crowd. 
It's scary here I must confess, 
When chaos reigns the school's a mess. 
So, Lord, this silent plea I make: 
Should I be shot; My soul please take! Amen .

If you aren't ashamed to, please let others know about this. REMEMBER: Jesus said, "If you are ashamed of me," I will be ashamed of you before my Father."
