Mini Vinnies Prayer Book
“Mini Vinnies” is a St Vincent de Paul group in primary school. It is a group of young people who get together to organise and talk about helping others in need within their school, local community and beyond.
The Little Book of Prayers is a compilation of prayers and pictures created by our Mini Vinnies Conference members. Thank you to all the young Vincentians who contributed to this amazing book and the teachers who support Mini Vinnies across the state.
Below is one of the prayers from the book that encourages us to give thanks in all things!
A Prayer of Thanks
Thank you God for making me!
Thank you for my family.
Thank you for all the shining stars
and for all the planets such as Mars.
Thank you for all creation
for shaping all the nations.
Thank you for my smiles and tears
and also for my encouraging peers.
Thank you for all the yummy food
that gives me my cheerful mood.
Thank you for all the art and craft
Thank you for the moments when I laugh.
Thank you for all the things we love
for all the birds, such as doves.
Thank you for all your care
Thank you for hugs as tight as bears.
Thank you for our education
that we share across the nation.
Thank you for our world
that you allowed to unfurl.
Amen By Maeve, Charli, Thomas, Bailey and Rhiannon, Our Lady of Annunciation Primary School, Pagewood
