A New School Prayer

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, 
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!

this poem is chilling and true.
God help us.


So true. Exactly why I send my kids to a private Christian school where prayer is taught. This year, when a student died, spontanous prayer meetings started, and every kid can now go to prayer meeting instead of recess. What's really scary is books on "alternative" living in school libraries in public schools.


As a public school teacher, I can tell you that the school consists of it's students, and the more that are from whole and healthy CHRISTIAN homes, the less true this poem will be. We have no such atomoshpere in our publlic schoo. My students are thrilles th hear me talk about teaching chilren's church, of funny things kids do in church and many are blessed to find an "ally" who is also a Christian in their teacher. I say, more and more people should raise Daniels who go into public school teaching as a profession. There is a call to " spoil the Egytians " sometimes and let them pay you to be a witness.
