​POWERFUL: The Lord’s Prayer as Rewritten by a 15-Year-Old in Minnesota for Their New School Prayer

As you all know, the Biblical Lord’s Prayer in not allowed in most United States Public Schools anymore.
​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 ‘judgements’ 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!

Please pray for our country, our leaders, and our children’s schools.  May God Bless and help us all.

Dear 15 yr old in Minnesota, I hope you read this. I am so proud of you for your brilliance and intelligence and your humanity at such a young age. I am 72 and I know that you are more intelligent than most people on Earth and you are wise beyond your years. I want you to know that the chaos you see daily is about to end and a beautiful new Earth is being born out of the Earth we’ve known where GOD is loved and spoken of, where peace and love reign supreme, where radiation poisoning will be… Read more »

Pull your kids from Government Schools. Lobby for full vouchers. Run for school boards. Audit school curricula, media purchases, materials in classrooms. Help your kids with their homework.

When a 15yr old can make better sense at what is and has happened out there is when the adults who have established these new rules need to stop and do some serious thinking on some damage control before things even become more screwed up
