Prayer is an important way to develop and express our relationship with God. There are many ways to pray. We can use both traditional and personal forms of prayer. Personal prayer is speaking to God / Te Atua from your heart: asking, thanking, praising and adoring. Traditional prayers can be prayed on our own, as a family or as a community. Here are some important Traditional prayers for Year 1 and 2 children at Holy Cross School.
Prayers we already know
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.
