Our Father in heaven...
Remember God is your childs father too, so worry less.
Great is your name in all the earth...
This is a statement that recognizes Gods powerful presence in everyplace. God is at school, too. Teach your children this so they will feel safer, and so they will remember him throughout their day.
Your kingdom come, your will be done on earth as it is in heaven...
Pray that Gods kingdom rule comes more fully into your childs world, and to yours. Pray for the people your child knows who are outside the kingdom.
Asking God for daily food reminds us of our dependence on him for everything we obtain nothing by ourselves. God is providing daily for you and for your child. Teach your little one this so that they learn to trust him.
Forgive us our sins as we forgive those who sin against us...
Just like the chalkboard at school can be wiped clean, so God is willing to wipe our sins away. No doubt someone will hurt your childs feelings, some one will sin against him or her. What will you teach your child about dealing with this offense?
Lead us not to temptation, but deliver us from evil...
This is poetic way of submitting our will to God; we want to go his way, but we know we have an enemy who wants keep us from that way. God is our hero and can deliver us. Children are well acquainted with the language of heroes and enemies (think Star Wars), so speak to them in these terms about God.
For yours is the kingdom,the power, and glory, forever...
What news could be better for moms sending their children out away from the nest of home? God is reigning over every place even school!
