Prayer of a Public Schooler

I saw this on a forum, and had to keep searching for it. So, I’ll post it here and everyone else can enjoy. It kinda goes along with my last post. Here is the original post. Kudos to the writer.

The prayer of a public schooler

WRITTEN BY A 15 yr. Old SCHOOL KID IN ARIZONA

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

Did you thank God you are home schooled today? I think it is a special privilege and a gift and should not be taken for granted. We should always protect our right to home school and not abuse it

 

 

Now I sit me down in school

Where praying’s not against the rule.

 

Where You’re the center of our day,

 

In sun and rain and work and play.

 

The ten commandments do we read

 

Remind us Lord to give good heed.

 

Lord help me always thankful be

 

For the land of liberty.

 

But most of all help me see

 

What you did on Calvary.

 

And if I die before I’m through

 

Take me home to be with you.

 

God Bless,

 

Andy

  1. I do thank God everyday for allowing me to stay home and educate my kids. I shudder to think about the things they would be encountering in PS. Thank you for posting this.
    Happy Homeschooling!

    PS I visit your blog often and really appreciate the “heads up” on all of the freebies! And I’m in TN too :0)

  2. A lot of food for thought here for certain. :o)

  3. I love both of those…The first one is so true in society today… and the second only reiterates the blessings I have in being able to be at home and school my children…
    Thanks so much for your wonderful posts..
    Blessings and Merry Christmas,
