Children's Daily Prayer 2023-2024

More Info

Throughout the history of the Church, Christians have consecrated time by pausing at various moments throughout the day to pray the Liturgy of the Hours (Guide for Celebrating Liturgy of the Hours). Children’s Daily Prayer is a form of the Liturgy of the Hours adapted for children. It helps guide children in a daily service of communal prayer, following the pattern of the Church’s Morning Prayer.

The heart of this annual resource is a simple order of prayer for each day and week that can be easily led by a child. Designed to fit seamlessly into your day, the entire prayer service takes no more than five to eight minutes. Daily Scripture texts have been carefully selected to help children “walk through the Bible” and become familiar with the great stories and themes of salvation history.

Children’s Daily Prayer 2023 through 2024 includes:

  • An order of prayer for each day and week of the school year from August 20, 2023, to June 28, 2024
  • Prayer services, suitable for classroom and large gatherings, for solemnities, feasts, and other special occasions
  • An “About the Season” section explaining each liturgical time, its character, and how to create conducive prayer environments
  • Send-home pages connecting children’s classroom and home lives

Instructions for parents on using the book with their children at home, and how to set up a prayer space.

More pronunciation guides have been added in the Opening sections and within the Scripture passages to accommodate young readers who will be leading prayer. Teachers, catechists, and parents can use Children's Daily Prayer to instill in children the habit of prayer and help form them in the heart of Christ's paschal mystery, the core and center of all liturgical prayer.
