Children’s Daily Prayer 2021-2022
history of the Church, Christians have consecrated time by pausing at various
moments throughout the day to pray the Liturgy of the Hours (Guide for
Celebrating Liturgy of the Hours). Children’s Daily Prayer is
a form of the Liturgy of the Hours, adapted for children. It helps to guide
children in a daily service of communal prayer that follows the pattern of the
Church’s Morning Prayer.
The heart of
this annual resource is a simple order of prayer for each day or week that can
be easily led by a student. Designed to fit seamlessly into your day, the
entire prayer service takes no more than five to eight minutes. Daily Scripture
texts have been carefully selected to help children “walk through the Bible”
and become familiar with the great stories and themes of Salvation History.
