Grade 6 Prayers


Act of Contrition

My God,
I am sorry for my sins with
    all my heart.
In choosing to do wrong
and failing to do good,
I have sinned against you
whom I should love above
    all things.
I firmly intend, with your help,
to do penance,
to sin no more,
and to avoid whatever
    leads me to sin.
Our Savior Jesus Christ
suffered and died for us.
In his name, my God,
    have mercy.
Amen.


Act of Contrition (Alternative)

O my God, I am heartily sorry for having offended you,
and I detest all my sins because of your just punishments,
but most of all because they offend you, my God, who are
all good and deserving of all my love. I firmly resolve with
the help of your grace to sin no more and to avoid the near
occasion of sin.
Amen.


Apostles' Creed

I believe in God, the Father almighty,
   Creator of heaven and earth,
and in Jesus Christ, his only Son,
   our Lord,
who was conceived by the Holy Spirit,
born of the Virgin Mary,
suffered under Pontius Pilate,
was crucified, died and was buried;
he descended into hell;
on the third day he rose again
from the dead;
he ascended into heaven,
and is seated at the right hand
   of God the Father almighty;
from there he will come to judge
   the living and the dead.

I believe in the Holy Spirit,
   the holy Catholic Church,
   the communion of saints,
   the forgiveness of sins,
   the resurrection of the body,
    and life everlasting. Amen.

    Father almighty,

    the living and the dead.

me.

Nicene Creed

I believe in one God,
  the Father almighty,
  maker of heaven and earth,
  of all things visible and invisible.

I believe in one Lord Jesus Christ,
  the Only Begotten Son of God,
  born of the Father before all ages.
  God from God, Light from Light,
  true God from true God,
  begotten, not made, consubstantial
     with the Father;
  through him all things were made.
  For us men and for our salvation
     he came down from heaven,
  and by the Holy Spirit
     was incarnate of the Virgin Mary,
          and became man.

  For our sake he was crucified
         under Pontius Pilate,
   he suffered death and was buried,
   and rose again on the third day
         in accordance with the Scriptures.
   He ascended into heaven
         and is seated at the right hand
            of the Father.
   He will come again in glory to judge
            the living and the dead
         and his kingdom will have no end.

I believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord,
    the giver of life,
 who proceeds from the Father and the Son,
 who with the Father and the Son is
    adored and glorified,
 who has spoken through the prophets.

I believe in one, holy, catholic
   and apostolic Church.
I confess one Baptism for the
   forgiveness of sins
and I look forward to the resurrection of the
   dead and the life of the world to come.
Amen.


Our Father

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 who
    trespass against us;
and lead us not into
temptation,
but deliver us from evil.
Amen.


Prayer for Vocation

Dear God,
You have a great and loving plan
for our world and for me.
I wish to share in that plan fully,
faithfully, and joyfully.
Help me to understand what it is
you wish me to do with my life.
Help me to be attentive to the signs
that you give me about preparing for the future.
Help me to learn to be a sign
of the kingdom, or reign, of
God whether I'm called to the
priesthood or religious life,
the single or married life.
And once I have heard and understood
your call, give me the strength
and the grace to follow it
with generosity and love.
Amen

The Canticle of Mary, The Magnificat

"My soul proclaims the greatness of the Lord;
    my spirit rejoices in God my savior.
For he has looked upon his handmaid's lowliness;
    behold, from now on will all ages call me
    blessed.
The Mighty One has done great things for me,
    and holy is his name.
His mercy is from age to age
    to those who fear him.
He has shown might with his arm,
    dispersed the arrogant of mind and heart.
He has thrown down the rulers from their thrones
    but lifted up the lowly.
The hungry he has filled with good things;
    the rich he has sent away empty.
He has helped Israel his servant,
    remembering his mercy,
according to his promise to our fathers,
    to Abraham and to his descendants forever."

(Luke 1:46-55)


The Canticle of Mary, The Magnificat (Alternative)

My soul proclaims the greatness of the Lord;
my spirit rejoices in God my Savior
for he has looked with favor on his lowly servant.
From this day all generations will call me blessed:
the Almighty has done great things for me
and holy is his Name.
He has mercy on those who fear him
in every generation.
He has shown the strength of his arm,
and has scattered the proud in their conceit.
He has cast down the mighty from their thrones,
and has lifted up the lowly.
He has filled the hungry with good things,
and the rich he has sent away empty.
He has come to the help of his servant Israel
for he has remembered his promise of mercy,
the promise he made to our fathers,
to Abraham and his children forever.
Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit:
As it was in the beginning, is now, and will be forever.


The Canticle of Zechariah

"Blessed be the Lord, the God of Israel,
for he has visited and brought redemption
    to his people.
He has raised up a horn for our salvation
within the house of David his servant,
even as he promised through the mouth of his
    holy prophets from of old:
    salvation from our enemies and from the
    hand of all who hate us,
    to show mercy to our fathers
    and to be mindful of his holy covenant
and of the oath he swore to Abraham our father,
and to grant us that, rescued from the hand
    of enemies,
without fear we might worship him in holiness
    and righteousness
    before him all our days.
And you, child, will be called prophet of the Most High,
for you will go before the Lord to prepare his ways,
to give his people knowledge of salvation
    through the forgiveness of their sins,
because of the tender mercy of our God
    by which the daybreak from on high will visit us
to shine on those who sit in darkness and
    death's shadow,
    to guide our feet into the path of peace."
