Let our children pray

Within these walls of wisdom.

Where our children learn.

Where can they go for guidance?

To whom can they turn?

Let them say whats on their mind.

If it's prayer , Then let them find .

What ever helps them through the day.

Let their day be divine.

Drugs are around each corner.

Gang's they seem to stay.

Violence on our tv sets.

No safe place for them to play.

People dying in our churches .

And death inside our schools.

Is prayer so bad for children ?

Is the bible not a learning tool?

Why can't you accept this picture?

Of children hand in hand.Asking god to help them.

To protect them when he can.

Some are taught to worship god.

Some are taught to hate.

Some are taught to do things right .

Some to make mistakes.

I prayed when I was younger.

No harm ever came my way.

Don't make a law against it.
