We say a prayer every lunchtime and before we leave school for the day:
For what we are about to receive,
May the Lord make us truly thankful
Leaving school / end of day prayer
God the Father, bless us,
God the Son, defend us
God the Spirit, keep us
Now and forever more
The Lord’s Prayer
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 that trespass against us
And lead us not into temptation
But deliver us from evil
For thine is the kingdom
The power and the glory
For ever and ever
