Here are five prayers easy enough for children to memorize. They are about things most parents would like their children to learn to pray about.
A Child’s Prayer to Start the Day
Be with me dear Lord I pray
As I start another day;
And also, Father, please help me
To be as good as I can be.
A Child’s Prayer to Say at Meals
Every single bite we chew
Is given as a gift from you,
So thank you for our table spread
With vegetables and meat and bread.
A Child’s Prayer for Family
Thank you for my family
And that we love and share;
Keep us all together, Lord,
And safe within your care.
A Child’s Prayer of Thanks
Thank you, God, for sun and trees;
Thank you for the summer breeze;
Thank you for all plants that grow;
And thanks for rain and winter snow.
Thank you for all things you give,
And thank you, God, because we live.
A Child’s Prayer for Bedtime
When I go to sleep tonight
Tucked up in my covers tight,
Protect me God the whole night through
And bless and keep my family too.
