Development of Prayer Life & Spirituality
Our School Prayer
Bless everyone in our school,
May your Holy Spirit guide us
As we fill our hearts with joy,
Our minds with learning,
Our classrooms with peace,
Our lessons with fun,
Our friendship with kindness
And our school with love.
St Martin de Porres Pray for us.
Father in heaven, you love me,
you are with me night and day.
I want to love you always
in all I do and say.
I'll try to please you, Father
bless me through the day.
God our Father, I come to say
thank you for your love today.
Thank you for my family
and all the friends you give to me.
Guard me in the dark of night
and in the morning send your light.
Grace before Meals
Bless us, O God, as we sit together.
Bless the food we eat today.
Bless the hands that made the food.
Bless us, O God.
Grace after Meals
Thank you, God, for the food we have eaten.
Thank you, God, for all our friends.
Thank you, God, for everything.
Thank you God.
Prayers to know off by heart
As children progress through the school, each year group has specific prayers to learn, so that by the end of their time at St Martin's, the children will know a wide range of prayers and be able to say them off by heart.
You can download or view the prayers below, or request a copy to be printed for you by talking with your child's class teacher.
Prayers for Reception, Year 1 & Year 2 Children
Prayers for Key Stage 2 Children (Year 3, 4, 5, and 6)
