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.
New! Scripture 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.
