As part of their school missions project this year, the year 2 classes are writing a prayer for somebody different every month. During May, the month of Our Lady, they devote their prayer to her.
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.
As we move on in our educational life we reflect and pray for those that help us at school and bless those who will shortly move on to secondary school.
