Each day the children say a variety of prayers at St. Vincent Elementary School. I have had a few parents ask for copies of the prayers so that they can pray with their children or use the version of a prayer that the children have learned. Here are a few prayers that you might find useful.
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 that trespass against us and lead us not into temptation but deliver us from evil. Amen
Act of Contrition
My God, I am sorry for my sins with all my heart. In choosing to do wrong and failing to do good, I have sinned against you whom I should love above all things. I firmly intend, with your help, to do penance, to sin no more and to avoid whatever leads me to sin. Our Savior Jesus Christ suffered and died for us. Ih his name, my God, have mercy. Amen
Prayer to My Guardian Angel
Angel of God, my Guardian dear, to whom God's love commits me here, ever this day be at my side, to light and guard, to rule and guide. Amen
Glory be to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit. As it was in the beginning is now and forever shall be, world without end. Amen.
Grace Before Meals
Bless us, O Lord, and these thy gifts which we are about to receive from thy bounty, through Christ our Lord. Amen
Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee. Blessed are thou among women and blessed is the fruit of your womb, Jesus. Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death. Amen
Remember, O Most Gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known that anyone who fled to your protection, implored your help, or sought your intercession was left unaided. Inspired by this confidence, I fly unto you, O Virgin of virgins my Mother. To you do I come, before you I stand, sinful and sorrowful. O Mother of the Word Incarnate, despise not my petition, but in your mercy hear and answer me. Amen
