We pray to the Lord and give thanks for his unification of us as one family in Aotearoa.
We pray for the sadness and hurt of former days
which touched us all, with the hope that the pathway forward may soon be both peaceful and good for us all.
We pray for the times where we embrace settlers and all others in unity.
Lord, we pray that you give us the spirit to strengthen us in the many tasks that lay ahead of us.
May Te Tiriti o Waitangi be taken up, to give us strength during the troubles and times ahead.
May we pursue the truth and justice for all, for the peoples of Aotearoa.
Care for us so that we may stand together in faith and peace for ever.
Through Christ Our Lord.
