Notes & Transcripts

Reading this prayer gives me hope that there are some teens out there that are hungry for God! Let's not get "weary in our well-doing". PTL

Friday night at the Shannon Football Game the prayer before the game had to be omitted, because of the Supreme Court Ruling... What is the world coming to?


This was written by a teen in Bagdad, Arizona.

Now I sit me down at 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 reins the schools a mess.

So, Lord, this silent plea I make:

Should I be shot; my soul please take!
