A NEW School Prayer

prayer-1308663_640The following poem came across my Facebook feed and I wanted to share it. Actually, it was posted on our school district Facebook Page which is really ironic when you consider what has been going on in our school district as of late.

I don’t know who wrote this, but this is one kid who really gets it. I wish I could give him or her credit. Again, I did NOT write this and am not taking credit for it. I am just the messenger. Feel free to pass it along if you’d like.

By a 15-year-old SCHOOL KID who got an A+ for this entry

The Lord’s Prayer Is not allowed in most US Public schools anymore.

A kid in Minnesota, wrote the following 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!

Amen

If you aren’t ashamed to do this, Please pass this on…

Jesus said, ‘If you are ashamed of me, I will be ashamed of you before my Father.’
