Paperback, 8 3/8 x 10 7/8, 368 pages
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.
