Children's Daily Prayer is designed to provide school leaders and catechists with a complete order of prayer for every day of the school year from Sunday, August 12, 2018 and goes through Friday, June 21, 2019. The format invites children to participate in the prayer service, while time for silent reflection encourages children to examine what the Scriptures mean for their everyday lives.
The structure of each prayer session is designed to it seamlessly into your day. The whole session takes no more than five to eight minutes, offering students a chance to pray together at the beginning or end of the day's lesson.
