I’m getting my CCD lessons prepared for next year, and one lesson is on prayer. Their book talks about Blessing Prayer, Novenas, The Stations of the Cross, Petition, Intercession, and Praise.
Well, the others I’ve all got examples for us to put into their prayer books, but I’d like to put in a Novena for them as well. Does anybody know a Novena meant to be said by children? Preferably something simple (they’re in fifth grade, but many won’t have heard of this before).
Or, can one just write their own Novena? It seems like something that’s come from a tradition, and that isn’t just ‘from scratch’.
