Daily Classroom Prayers
w/c 04 November 2019
The 1st November marked the Feast of All Saint’s, so this week our prayers celebrate different saints by relating their lives to qualities expressed in Sunday’s Gospel, the Beatitudes. Each of the Beatitudes start with the word ‘blessed’ which can be translated as ‘happy’, and through them Jesus teaches us what can bring true happiness.
How to Lead
Each day the format is the same:
Slide 1 – 3
- Prayer Leaders 1 and 2 read from the screen to introduce the day’s saint and Beatitude.
- Click to play the story of the day’s saint:
Monday - St Clare was poor in spirit yet trusted God in all things.
Tuesday - St Pio was a peacemaker.
Wednesday - St Frances Xavier Cabrini showed love and mercy to the poor.
Thursday - St Martin de Porres was gentle to all, even when they were grumpy.
Friday - St Thérèse of Lisieux desired to be holy.
Slide 5 – 6
- Prayer Leaders should lead in prayer and reflection by reading the text on screen. Teachers should ensure they allow pauses where appropriate.
Key Stage Variation
- Key Stage 2: Identify two children each day who will be Prayer Leaders. They will read the text on the screen to the whole class.
- Key Stage 1: The teacher should take the Prayer Leader roles or ask older pupils to come and lead the prayers in the classroom.
