Grade 3 Class

In our school, each class takes turns reading the prayer on the intercom each day. Sometimes the prayers are chosen from books, and sometimes the prayers are written by the students themselves.

Our class was taught that prayers should have 4 parts:

- Praise
- Thanks
- Request
- Action

The following are the prayers written by our class, in the new year (2003). Some of our students were then chosen, to read their prayers on the intercom for the week of January 27-February 7, 2003.


Danielle's Prayer

Dear God,
I praise you Lord for all you made.

Jesus I thank you for my family and friends.

God, I ask you to make me a STAR, so I can help people like you help people.

I love you.

DJ's Prayer

Make us into STARS Lord,
STARS that welcome,
STARS that give help,
STARS that bring peace,
so that in the darkness of this world,
a smile will be found,
a helping hand,
a kind look,
a wise word.
These are the STARS of our world.

These STARS are in the heart of each person.
The STARS help us make our way to you Lord!

We thank you for making us all.
