Prayers which should be known in each class
During this time of uncertainty, let us join together and take stock of all that is important. Let us join together to pray. To listen to God. To draw strength from our faith. Below are the prayers that the children use on a daily basis at school.
As well as ideas for a prayer space. Your children are wonderful at creating things, so I am sure they would be delighted to help.
Thank you Lord,
for this nice day.
Bless our friends,
Our work, our play.
Father in heaven, you love me,
you are with me night and day.
I want to love you always
in all I do and say.
I’ll try to please you, Father,
bless me through the day.
Grace Before Meals
Bless us, O God, as we sit together.
Bless the food we eat today.
Bless the hands that made the food.
Bless us, O God.
Grace after meals
Thank you, God, for the food we have eaten.
Thank you, God, for all our friends.
Thank you, God, for everything.
Thank you God.
Prayer at the end of the day
God our Father, I come to say
thank you for your love today.
Thank you for my family
and all the friends you give to me.
Guard me in the dark of night
and in the morning send your light.
Hail Mary, full of grace,
the Lord is with thee:
blessed art thou among women,
and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus.
Holy Mary, Mother of God,
pray for us sinners,
now and at the hour of our death.
Our Father, who art in heaven,
hallowed be thy name.
Thy kingdom come.
Thy will be done on earth,
as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread,
and forgive us our trespasses,
as we forgive those who trespass against us.
And lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil.
