“But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.”
A Children’s Mealtime Prayer (sung to “Frère Janque” / “Are You Sleeping, Brother John?”)
God our Father, God our Father,
We thank you, we thank you,
For our many blessings, for our many blessings,
We thank you. We thank you.
“Whoever has my commands and obeys them, he is the one who loves me. He who loves me will be loved by my Father, and I too will love him and show myself to him.”
A Bedtime Prayer for Children:
Now I lay me down to sleep,
I pray the Lord my soul to keep.
See me safely through the night,
And wake me with the morning light.
Ask, and it will be given to you; search, and you will find; knock, and the door will be opened for you. For everyone who asks receives, and everyone who searches finds, and for everyone who knocks, the door will be opened.
A Morning Prayer:
Good morning Lord, it's great to be with you again today. I'm glad you are going to be with me today. Help me in all I do and say today, bring a smile to my lips for all I meet today, place on my tongue kind and gentle words for all I speak with today. And when the day's over bring me home safely.
So do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.
A Mealtime Prayer (sung to “Old 100th,” or “The Doxology”)
Praise God, from whom all blessings flow
Praise him all creatures here below,
Praise him above, ye heavenly Host,
Praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost. A-men.
For I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor rulers, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.
