First Grade Prayers
The Lord’s Prayer
Our Father, 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.
Hail Mary, full of grace,
the Lord is with thee.
Blessed art thou among women
and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus.
Holy Mary, Mother of God,
pray for us sinners,
now and at the hour of our death.
Glory be to the Father
And to the Son
And to the Holy Spirit,
As it was in the beginning
Is now, and ever shall be
world without end.
Verse from the Liturgy of the Hours
Cry out with joy to the Lord, all the earth.
Serve the Lord with gladness.
Come before him, singing for joy.
Know that he, the Lord, is God.
He made us, we belong to him,
We are his people, the sheep of his flock.
Go within his gates, giving thanks.
Enter his courts with songs of praise.
Give thanks to him and bless his name.
Indeed, how good is the Lord,
Eternal his merciful love.
He is faithful from age to age.
Sign of the cross
In the name of the Father and of the Son
and of the Holy Spirit. Amen

Bless us, Oh Lord, and these thy gifts,
which we are about to receive,

Grace After Meals
We give thanks,
for all thy benefits,
who live and reign forever.
Prayer to our Guardian Angel
Angel of God, my guardian dear,
to whom God’s love commits me here.
Ever this day, be at my side,
to light and guard, to rule and guide.
