What If We Had Prayer In Schools Today?
What if we had prayer in schools today?
And the students were allowed to pray?
What if the students read their Bible in class?
Perhaps they’d have a foundation that would last!
What if the students, in the classrooms,
across this nation…
Knew that Jesus can make them a NEW creation!
Isn’t it about time that we invite
God into our schools?
Instead of living by our own set of rules?
Isn’t it about time that we confess our wayward sins?
And allow God into our lives… Once again???
Isn’t it about time that we call on Jesus’ name?
Only he can remove all of our sin and shame!
Isn’t it about time that we think about our eternity?
And find true love and joy!
And a godly security!
Isn’t it about time that we get on our knees in prayer?
And talk to a loving God
who listens and cares?
The time for change, we need to understand!
We need a Godly revival across our land!
We need to listen and follow God’s instructions!
Or we’ll soon find our society’s destruction!
God is the only one that we can depend on!
His word is what our nation must stand on!
