Designed to be led by students, these short prayer
services will deepen and enrich classroom prayer every day of the school year.
For teachers, parents, principals, and religious educators, helpful
introductions provide background on each liturgical season, along with advice
on preparing the worship space and getting children involved in the service.
Prayers are also provided for use at home, before
meals, and at the end of the day to encourage family prayer throughout the
week. With Children's Daily Prayer, you can form your students in
the rich tradition of Roman Catholic prayer, guiding them as they become
acquainted with the rhythms and rituals of Catholic worship.
readings from the evangelist for the year have been selected to help children
become familiar with important Scripture stories and themes. In addition there
are prayers for before meals and at the end of the day, as well as prayer
services for the liturgical seasons and special feasts, and reproducible prayer
services for children to take home to their families to celebrate occasions
when they are not in school.
But this resource does more than provide a script. It forms everyone who uses
it in the rich tradition of Roman Catholic prayer. It helps us to be who we are
by inviting the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit into each school day.
