Prayer By Arizona Teenager

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 one 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 now 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" don't 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!

  1. I've seen this before--it's so true! The laws they make are ridiculous..If they're not teaching right from wrong, then I guess I should nOT be considered "wrong" to mention God's name in public.

  2. Awesome! They should read this in congress!

  3. btw I'm using a blogspot account now..I like it a lot!

  4. Unfortunately, the prayer is true. It breaks my heart to see what our youth and children must face - and verifies so much more the need to hold them up in prayer.

  5. I've never read this. How true. Dear God, help us!!

  6. This is awesome. Yes, they should read this in congress!
