My struggles with life death and religion part two

And what of teaching the bible 
to my innocent little three?
How do I expose them to
the high probability of hypocrisy?

I have no knowledge of the bible,
to lead to as my own,
kids have many questions,
and ignorance could cast my stone.

I seek the humbleness 
and quiet faith
of those around me
but struggle to relate.

How to relate to the bible,
when miracles where common place,
they all still crucified Him, 
though they were all witness to His grace.

How am I to be expected 
to have such blind faith,
in this Lord of zero words,
this Lord without a face?

When those of His time,
saw him true and tried,
saw his miraculous healings,
and still from Him they hide?

Hide behind the hypocrisy
of democracy of the Kings and Pharoahs,
blaming His doings 
on the works of the devils?

God if you are listening,
somewhere up there in the clouds,
please take my uncertainties
as I scream them out loud.

Please give me guidance,
please give me grace,
please give me the chance
to keep with the pace.

Pace me to righteousness,
and guide me in my path,
lead me away from all who shall harm me,
and spare me from Your wrath.

Give me knowledge
to share with these innocent 3
allow my faith to lead us all
unto thee

My life so unsettling 
has taken its toll on me,
I'm ready, My Lord,
ready as I'll ever be.

To accept much of Your teachings,
to decipher the hypocrisy,
to lead a better life,
a life of Christianity.

BE WITH ME.
