New school prayer

This was written by a teen in Bagdad, Arizona. This is

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 liable.

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,
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!

Jesus said, ” if you are ashamed of me, I will be ashamed of you before my
Father.” Yes, I do Love God. He is my source of existence and Savior.
He keeps me functioning each and everyday. Without Him, I will be

Without him, I am nothing but with Him I can do all things
through Christ that strengthens me. (Phil 4:13)

If you Love God, and are not ashamed of all the marvelous things he
has, pass this on.
