3 Poems of Relevance
|Since the Pledge of Allegiance and The Lord’s Prayer are not allowed in public schools anymore because the word “God” is mentioned, A kid in Arizona wrote the attached NEW School prayer:|
Now I sit me down in
If Scripture now the class
Our hair can be purple,
orange or green,
For praying in a public
We’re allowed to cuss and
dress like freaks,
We can get our condoms and
It’s scary here I must
Climb Till Your Dreams Come True
Often your tasks will be many,
And more than you think you can do…
Often the road will be rugged
And the hills insurmountable, too…
But always remember, the hills ahead
Are not as steep as they seem,
And with Faith in your heart start upward
And climb ‘til you reach your dream,
For nothing in life that is worthy
Is ever too hard to achieve
If you have the Faith to believe…
For Faith is a force that is greater
Than knowledge or power or skill
And many defeats turn to triumph
If you trust in God’s wisdom and will…
For Faith is a mover of mountain,
There’s nothing that God cannot do,
So start out today with Faith in your heart
And “Climb Till Your Dream Comes True”!

The following poem was written by Judge Roy Moore
from Alabama. Judge Moore was sued by the ACLU for displaying the Ten
Commandments in his courtroom foyer. He has been stripped of his judgeship
and now they are trying to strip his right to practice law in Alabama!
America the beautiful, or so you used to be.
Land of the Pilgrims' pride; I'm glad they'll never see.
You think that
God's not angry, that our land's a moral slum?
We've voted in a
before he leaves the womb.
You think that God's not
angry, that our land's a moral slum?
How much longer will He wait
before His judgment comes?
How are we to face our God,
from Whom we cannot hide?
What then is left for us to do,
but stem this evil tide?
If we who are His children,
will humbly turn and pray;
Seek His holy face
and mend our evil way:
Then God will hear from Heaven;
and forgive us of our sins,
He'll heal our sickly land
and those who live within.
But, America the Beautiful,
If you don't - then you will see,
A sad but Holy God
withdraw His hand from Thee.
