Daily Prayer

My Thank You Prayer!

When you pray you are talking to God. We ask God for help, to look after our family and loved ones. Today, you are going to write a prayer to God thanking him. You will also be drawing a picture.

Resources: Paper, pencil, colour in pencils

Begin with the Sign of the Cross
In the name of the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit, Amen.

Close your eyes and take 3 deep breaths, breathing in and out three times

Take time to answer this question.
Write down as many answers as you wish.

What would you like to Thank God for? (This could be family, friends, food, toys…)

Draw a picture underneath your prayer and colour it in.

Conclude with the sign of the cross.

Note: Please use the whole prayer or parts of it to suit your child’s age and needs.
