If you live in Shelburne County Nova Scotia and you’re up to helping your kid (grandkids count too) learn some of our prayers – I think that’s awesome! Please do! Please do and share a video with us of your brilliant little person (you can even be a part of it) saying the prayer; send it to me, and we will use it as part of a special video presentation later on! OH AND WE’LL SEND OUT A SPECIAL PRIZE TO THE LITTLE PERSON(S) PRAYING!
Here’s an example…
Here are some prayers you could focus on – but feel free to use others you may enjoy…
who art in heaven,
hallowed be thy name,
thy kingdom come,
thy will be done,
on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our trespasses,
as we forgive those who trespass against us.
And lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil.
For thine is the kingdom,
the power, and the glory,
for ever and ever. Amen.
Jubilate Psalm 100
Be joyful in the Lord, all you lands;
* serve the Lord with gladness and come before his presence with a song.
Know this: The Lord himself is God;
* he himself has made us, and we are his;
we are his people and the sheep of his pasture.
Enter his gates with thanksgiving; go into his courts with praise;
* give thanks to him and call upon his name.
For the Lord is good; his mercy is everlasting;
* and his faithfulness endures from age to age.
Hear, O Israel
Hear, O Israel,
the Lord our God, the Lord is one.
Love the Lord your God with all your heart,
with all your soul,
with all your mind,
and with all your strength.
This is the first and the great commandment.
The second is like it: Love your neighbour as yourself.
There is no commandment greater than these.
Helpful Hint – Make it fun and do it regularly over a period of time…
