Prayers for Students

The foundation of our prayer life as Catholics comes through our formal prayers.  Our prayer life begins in the home and our Catholic Schools and Faith Formation programs encourage parents to embrace their call as the first teachers of their children in the faith by working with their children to learn these formal prayers.  Prayers are reinforced in our Catholic Schools and Faith Formation programs.

Our Catholic Schools and Faith Formation Programs throughout the Diocese of Sacramento recommend that prayers be learned at least by the grade level indicated in this Prayer BookPlease click here to view those additional prayers.

Dear God,

Thank you for this day.

Help me to act in such a way

that I will be proud of myself

and others will be proud of me too.

I have come to school to learn

and it is through the help of my

parents and my teachers

that I will succeed.

Help me to have a good day!
