Prayers Class

Our faith in God the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit is the main reason we are here at St. Margaret of Scotland School. As part of our faith we need to take time to pray daily. The second grade will be responsible to learn the following prayers during the year as part of their preparation for First Reconciliation and First Holy Communion.


In the name of the Father,

and of the Son,

and of the Holy Spirit.



Our Father,

Who art in heaven,

hallowed be Your name;

Your kingdom come;

Your 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.



Hail Mary,

full of grace

the Lord is with you;

blessed are you among women,

and blessed is the fruit

of your 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.



My God,

I am sorry for my sins

with all my heart

In choosing to do wrong

and failing to do good

I have sinned against you

whom I should love

above all things.

I firmly intend, with your

help, to do penance,

to sin no more, and to avoid

whatever leads me to sin.

Our Savior Jesus Christ suffered and died

for us.

In His name, my God have mercy.


I confess to almighty God,

and to you, my brothers and sisters,

that I have greatly sinned

in my thoughts and in my words,

in what I have done,

and in what I have failed to do,

through my fault, through my fault,

through my most grievous fault;

therefore I ask blessed Mary ever-Virgin,

all the Angels and Saints,

and you, my brothers and sisters,

to pray for me to the Lord our God.


Angel of God

my guardian dear,

to whom God's love

commits me here,

Ever this day

be at my side,

to light and guard,

to rule and guide.



Glory to God in the highest,

and on earth peace to people of good will.

We praise you, we bless you,

we adore you, we glorify you,

we give you thanks for your great glory.

Lord God, Heavenly King,

O God, almighty Father.

Lord Jesus Christ, only Begotten Son,

Lord God, Lamb of God,

Son of the Father,

you take away the sins of the world,

have mercy on us;

you take away the sins of the world,

receive our prayer;

you are seated at the right hand

of the Father, have mercy on us.

For you alone are the Holy One,

you alone are the Lord,

you alone are the Most High,

Jesus Christ,

with the Holy Spirit,

in the glory of God the Father.



Bless us, O Lord,

and these your gifts

which we are about to receive

from your goodness,

through Christ our Lord.



We give You thanks,

almighty God,

for all Your goodness.

You live and reign

now and forever.



I believe in one God, the Father

almighty, maker of heaven

and earth,

of all things visible and invisible.

I believe in one Lord Jesus Christ,

the Only Begotten Son of God,

born of the Father before all ages.

God from God,

Light from Light,

true God from true God,

begotten, not made,

consubstantial with the Father;

through Him all things were made.

For us men and for our salvation He

came down from heaven;

and by the Holy Spirit

was incarnate of the Virgin Mary,

and became man.

For our sake He was crucified

under Pontius Pilate,

He suffered death and was buried,

and rose again on the third day

in accordance with the Scriptures.

He ascended into heaven and is

seated at the right hand of

the Father.

He will come again in glory to

judge the living and the dead,

and His kingdom will have no end.

I believe in the Holy Spirit, the

Lord, the giver of life, who

proceeds from the Father and

the Son, who with the Father and

the Son he is adored and

glorified, who has spoken

through the Prophets.

I believe in one, holy, catholic

and apostolic Church.

I confess one baptism

for the forgiveness of sins,

and I look forward to the resurrection of the dead,

and the life of the world to come.
