Love Praying As Family? This is Family Prayer Time

Family Prayer Time

Father/Mother: Let us begin with the sign of the Cross.

All: In the name of the Father
and of the Son
and of the Holy Spirit.
As it was in the beginning,
is now and ever shall be,
world without end.

Amen.
All: Dear Jesus,
we are here to spend a few minutes
with you in prayer.
We want to pray for ourselves,
our friends and neighbours
and for everyone in the world.
We know that you came
to call all of us to know,
love and serve your heavenly Father
so that we would be one big, happy family.

Parent: Jesus, be close to us now
as we pray to the Father in the words you taught us.

All: 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 trespass against us;
and lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil.

Parent: Jesus, we want to pray
to your Mother too.
We want to remember how the angel told her
she was to be your Mother.
We want to remember how she went to Elizabeth
who praised her for saying to God,
“Be it done to me as you wish.”
That was saying a big “yes” to God.
We want to ask Mary to pray for us
because we know, Jesus,
that if we are close to her,
we will be close to you.

All: Hail Mary, full of grace.
The Lord is with thee.
Blessed are thou among women
and blessed is the fruit of thy womb Jesus.
Holy Mary, Mother of God,
pray for us sinners,
now and at the hour of our death.

Amen.

Parent: Jesus, as God,
you were in existence before the world was made.
Then you became a human being with Mary
as your mother so that you could tell the world
how you and the Father and the Holy Spirit
together love all of us
and want to share your holy life with us.
all praise to this Most Holy Trinity.

All: Glory be to the Father
and to the Son
and to the Holy Spirit.
As it was in the beginning,
is now and ever shall be,
world without end.

Amen.
