Prayer is a very important part of daily life here at St Ambrose and is something Jesus taught us to do. Together, we learn and use a variety of prayers in reflection time, worship sessions and whole school assemblies.
The prayers our children say throughout key times in each school day are:
Our Morning Prayer
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.
Our Evening Prayer
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.
Some of the other prayers we use in school are in our 'Prayers at St Ambrose' prayer book. It includes: our Emmaus Multi-Academy Company prayer, The Angelus, The Lord's Prayer, Hail Mary and many more.
