Nice short prayers to the Lord, for Children :)

Thank you for the world so sweet,
Thank you for the food we eat,
Thank you for the birds that sing,
Thank you God for everything.

A Child’s Evening Hymn

I hear no voice, I feel no touch,
I see no glory bright;
But yet I know that God is near,
In darkness as in light.
God watches ever by my side,
And hears my whispered prayer:
A God of love for a little child
Both night and day does care.

Dear Heavenly Father from above,
Look down on (Names of Children) with love,
Please keep them in your care,
And tonight hear their prayer.

A Child’s Grace

God is great and God is Good,
And we thank God for our food;
By God’s hand we must be fed,
Give us Lord, our daily bread. Amen.

God made the sun,
And God made the trees,
God made the mountains,
And God made me.
Thank you O God,
For the sun and the trees,
For making the mountains,
And for making me.

A Child’s Prayer for Morning

Now, before I run to play,
Let me not forget to pray
To God who kept me through the night
And waked me with the morning light.
Help me, Lord, to love thee more
Than I ever loved before,
In my work and in my play
Be thou with me through the day.
Amen.

Day is done
Gone the sun
From the lake,
From the hills,
From the sky.
All is well, safely rest.
God is nigh.

Now I lay me down to sleep,
I pray the Lord my soul to keep
If I should die before I wake
I pray the Lord my soul to take
God bless our family and our friends.

God Hear My Prayer

God in heaven hear my prayer,
keep me in thy loving care.
Be my guide in all I do,
Bless all those who love me too.
Amen.

— Traditional

Now I lay me down to sleep,
I pray the Lord my soul to keep
May angels watch me
through the night and
wake me with the morning light.

Angel Blessing at Bedtime

Angels bless and angels keep
Angels guard me while I sleep
Bless my heart and bless my home
Bless my spirit as I roam
Guide and guard me through the night
and wake me with the morning’s light.
Amen

— Traditional

Prayer for Students

God of Light and Truth,
thank you for giving me
a mind that can know
and a heart that can love.
Help me to keep learning every day of my life,
for all knowledge leads to you.
Let me be aware of your presence
in all things and at all times.
Encourage me when work is difficult
and when I am tempted to give up;
encourage me when my brain seems slow
and the way forward is difficult.
Grant me the grace to put my mind to use
exploring the world you have created,
confident that in you there a wisdom
that is real.
Amen.

— Charles Henderson

He is in his father’s custody…but lives half mile away. I’m working on getting him back..but his father has taught him nothing about God. My son wants to live with me.

  17. Non religious prayer
    Two little eyes to look around at who is here with us today,
    Two little ears to hear each word that they may say,
    One little nose to smell what’s sweet,
    One little mouth that loves to eat,
    Please enjoy this food, which is to you, our birthday treat.

    We have been looking for a short prayer that we could use at a 70th birthday lunch. The above is a combination of a prayer found on the web plus modification to suit our circumstances.

    The word birthday can be changed to suit the occasion ie, christening, remembrance , engagement ,etc

  18. Matthew Mark Luke and John,
    Bless the bed that I lay on.
    Before I lay me down to sleep,
    I give the Lord my Soul to keep.
    Four corners to my bed,
    Four angels overhead.
    One at the head,
    One at the feet,
    And two to guard me while I sleep.

  19. thank you for such a good prayer
