As part of their school missions project this year, the year 2 classes are writing a prayer for somebody different every month.
We are doing this because Jesus said: ‘I tell you therefore: everything you ask and pray for, believe that you have it, already, and it will be yours.’
The children will pray this prayer in school each day. It would be great if you could include it in the prayers you say with your children at home, especially if they are in year 2.
For the month of April, the children wrote a prayer of thanks for spring and new life, and for help to follow Jesus' example.
Thank you for bringing us peace and harmony,
Please shine your light upon all the new life,
Thank you for bringing us longer, sunnier spring days.
Thank you for sacrificing your Son for our sins,
Help us to be courageous like Jesus when he was crucified on the cross,
Help us to remember the gifts that Jesus gave us and that His love is everlasting.
Bless our hearts this Easter time so that we may share our love with everyone,
St Gregory, pray for us.
