1st Grade Prayers
Sign of the Cross
In the name of the Father,
And the Son,
And the Holy Spirit,
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.
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.
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.
Grace Before Meals
Bless us, O Lord, and these thy gifts,
which we are about to receive
from thy bounty,
through Christ our Lord.
My God, I offer you today,
all I think and do and say,
uniting it with what was done
on earth by Jesus Christ, Your Son.
Angel of God
Angel of God, my Guardian dear,
to whom God's love commits me here,
ever this day be at my side,
to light, to guard, to rule and guide.
Grace After Meals
We give You thanks for all Your benefits,
O Almighty God,
who lives and reigns forever,
and may the souls of the faithful departed,
through the mercy of God, rest in peace.
