PreK – K
Grade 1-2
John 3:16 – For God so loved the world that He gave His only-begotten Son that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life.
Grade 3-4 Galatians 3:13 – Christ redeemed us from the curse of the law by becoming a curse for us, for it is written: “Cursed is everyone who is hung on a tree.”
Grade 1-2 5th Petition – And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us.
Grade 3-4 5th Petition – And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us.

What does this mean?
We pray in this petition that our Father in heaven would not look upon our sins or because of them deny our prayers; for we are worthy of none of the things for which we ask, neither have we deserved them, but we ask that he would give them all to us by grace; for we daily sin much and surely deserve nothing but punishment. So we too will forgive from the heart and gladly do good to those who sin against us.

Grade 5-8 1 Corinthians 3:11 – For no one can lay any other foundation other than the one already laid, which is Jesus Christ.
Grade 5-8 1 Peter 2:9 – You are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people belonging to God, that you may declare the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His wonderful light.
Grade 5-8 Doxology of the Lord’s Prayer – For Thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever and ever. Amen.

What does this mean?
We can be sure that these petitions are acceptable to our Father in heaven and are heard by him, for he himself has commanded us so to pray and has promised to hear us. Therefore we say, “Amen,” “Yes, it shall be so.”
