A Students Prayer


Now I lay 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.

Any time my head I bow

Becomes a Federal matter now.


The law is specific; the law is precise.

Praying out loud is no longer nice.

Praying aloud in a public hall,

upsets those who believe in nothing at all.


In silence alone, we can meditate,

And if God gets the credit...great!


They are bringing their guns,

I don't dare bring my Bible.

If I choose to do so,

it might make me liable.


So now, oh Lord, this plea I make

If I am shot in school, my soul please take.

This poem was written by a 12 year old boy in Bagdad, Arizona.
