Prayer for Our Country

You said that if wed humble ourselves
Youd hear our cry from heaven
I fear that we are full of pride
Our hearts are full of leaven

As this year starts we know the need
To come to you and pray
Our country needs some wisdom, Lord
God bless the USA

We do not want to judge the heart
Of those along the way
We want to bow before you Lord
Absolve the USA

The years have come, the years have gone
Weve watched so much decay
Four million babies die each year
Forgive the USA

Our youth have left the standards taught
They are tattooed, pierced and gay
We need your help to bring them back
Restore the USA

We hear your children fuss and fight
They go to church to play
Help us remember why were here
Revive the USA

Oh, I really like this prayer, and the way you wrote it. Great job!
I would suggest that you add punctuation to this poem - it helps it to flow better, and makes it easier to read.
Keep up the great work!

I appreciated this prayer for our country, and I enjoyed the way you presented it as poetry with the last line of each stanza a plea for the USA. Good job!
