Daily Classroom Prayers
w/c 02 March 2020
This week’s Gospel tells us of Jesus’ temptations in the desert and how He overcame these using Scripture. We are reminded that Jesus was human as well as divine: He was tempted, as we are, and knew the difficulties that we face.
The prayers this week use the ‘Our Father’ prayer that Jesus taught His disciples to help children learn how to trust in God and resist temptation.
How to Lead
- Each day has three PowerPoint slides, which offer reflections and thoughts on each line of the ‘Our Father’. Follow the slides as directed: some text is for the Prayer Leader to read, other text is for everyone.
- Please note that some days children are invited to vocalise a response prayer, while other days their reflections are more introspective – please do facilitate pauses where appropriate.
- By the end of the week, children will say the whole of the ‘Our Father’ – the words will be on screen, but you can encourage children to learn it if you wish.
Key Stage Variation
- The ‘Prayer Leader’ can be read by a child or adult as you prefer.
- Class teachers can read the prayer as written, or they may paraphrase the prayer into their own words.
- You might like to play quiet reflective music in the background.
