Prayers students should know at the end of second grade include those learned in first grade as well as those listed below. Please spend time practicing these at home with your child.
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 have trespassed against us.
Lead us not into temptation,
But deliver us from evil.
The Act of Contrition (Prayer of Sorrow)
I am sorry for my sins with all my heart,
In choosing to do wrong and failing to do good,
I have sinned against you whom I should love above all things.
I firmly intend, with your help to do penance,
to sin no more and to avoid whatever leads me to sin.
Our Savior, Jesus Christ suffered and died for us.
In his name, my God, have mercy.
Hail Mary full of grace,
The Lord is with you.
Blessed are you among women,
And blest is the fruit of your womb, Jesus.
Holy Mary, Mother of God,
Pray for us sinners now and at the hour of our death.
Before Meal Prayer
Bless us oh Lord
And these thy gifts
Which we are about to receive
From thy bounty
Through Christ, Our Lord
After Meal Prayer
We give you thanks, God
For these and all you gifts
Which we have received,
Through Christ our Lord
