We say the Angel of God prayer every night.
Sandra (proud mommy to 2 boys !)
I remember the,Now I lay me down to Sleep.. and,Bless us Oh Lord for these our gifts.. prayer from my childhood.
Like you, we started with the Guardian Angel prayer, then added the Our Father and the Hail Mary. My 4 year old likes to sing the Johnny Appleseed song as well. :-)
We also do "special prayers" -- whatever they'd like to pray about. Because my 4 year old now prays with the others who say all the prayers (and sometimes the Memorare to boot!) he hasn't picked up on the words as well. So lately I've been trying to pray with him alone, and sticking to one prayer per night.
