Prayers you learned as a kid?

Are there any prayers you learned as a kid?  I'm looking for some short, easy to memorize or remember, fill in the blank of things you are thankful for etc. that are appropriate for kids.

Re: Prayers you learned as a kid?

  • Being Baptist, the only prayer we memorized was the Lord's Prayer, and we only said that every once in a while so it didn't become rote.  

    However, my preschool did say a prayer every day before lunch:

    Thank you, God, for happy hearts,
    for rain and sunny weather.
    Thank you, God, for this, our food,
    and that we are together.
    Amen.
  • The Lord's Prayer was the only prayer I learned. 

    Emily, I'm really impressed you remember something from pre-school!  If I learned any prayers there, I've forgotten them.

    The one we do at church during kids' time at the end is:
    Dear God,
    Thank you for today.  Thank you for Jesus, for ___, for ___, and ____.  (usually related to the daily bible story but sometimes also family and friends and the colour red and sunshine).
    Amen.

    It's definitely concise and to the point, but I'm looking for other suggestions.

    Emily I like yours!

  • Just the standard bedtime prayer:

    Now I lay me down to sleep
    I pray the Lord my soul to keep
    If I should die before I wake
    I pray the Lord my soul to take

    And the before-meals prayer:

    God is great, God is good
    Let us thank Him for our food
    By His hands we all are fed
    Thank you, Lord, for daily bread

    And of course, the Lord's Prayer.

  • I worked at a Christian pre-school in high school and we did the superman prayer (you kind of sing it to the tune the superman theme): 

    Thank you God for giving us food
    Thank you God for giving us food
    For the friends that we meet
    and the food that we eat
    Thank you God for giving us food

    or the standard

    Come Lord Jesus be our guest, 
    Let these gifts to us be blessed

    There were others, but I can't remember them
