Schools Morning Prayers for Easter 3


Let us pray


Father of us all,
As we celebrate Easter time
we thank you for all you give us
and we offer you this day with generous hearts
through Christ our Lord.   Amen.


Short Reading   John 10: 11-18

I am the good shepherd,
and I know mine and mine know me,
just as the Father knows me and I know the Father;

We pray that we may so love our families and friends
that we pray for them every day.
Lord, hear us


We pray that each day
we may be able to do something kind
for other people.
Lord, hear us


We pray that
being aware of the needs of others
we may be generous to them.
Lord, hear us


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


Let us pray

Let us always find the strength we need
To live up to the dignity you have given us As your children,
And to support others when they need our help.
We ask this through Christ our Lord.


Blessing: May the Lord bless us, and keep us from all harm,
and may he lead us to eternal life.
