Collect:       God of compassion,

you love every person without exception.

Turn our hearts so that we may love our neighbour.

Remove from us everything we use to exclude our sisters and brothers.

Guard the door of our lips so that what we say may be worthy of our calling as your people. Through Jesus Christ our Saviour,

who is alive and reigns with you,

in the unity of the Holy Spirit,

one God, now and for ever.

Amen

Daily Prayer and Devotions

The Lord’s Prayer


Our Father in heaven,
hallowed be your name,
your kingdom come,
your will be done,
on earth as in heaven.
Give us today our daily bread.
Forgive us our sins
as we forgive those who sin against us.
Save us from the time of trial
and deliver us from evil.

For the kingdom, the power, and the glory are yours
now and for ever.    Amen.

FOR OUR COUNTRY - Aotearoa New Zealand

God of the southern sea
and of these islands,
of Māori, Pākehā
and of all who dwell in our land;
we give you thanks and praise for our country,
and for what we have achieved together.
Increase our trust in one another;
strengthen our quest for justice,
and bring us to unity and a common purpose.
You have made us of one blood;
make us also of one mind.

Amen

A THANKSGIVING FOR OUR COUNTRY - Aotearoa New Zealand

Blessed are you, God of the universe.
You have created us, and given us life.

Blessed are you, God of the planet earth.
You have set our world like a radiant jewel in the heavens,
and filled it with action, beauty, suffering, struggle and hope.

Blessed are you, God of Aotearoa New Zealand
in all the peoples who live here,
in all the lessons we have learned,
in all that remains for us to do.

Blessed are you because you need us;
because you make us worthwhile,
because you give us people to love
and work to do
for your universe, for your world and for ourselves.

Amen.
A PRAYER FOR THE FAMILY

Lord Jesus, at Nazareth you shared in the life of your family.

Help us to live together in our family with love and respect for each other.

Make our home a place of blessing, peace and joy for everyone, to the glory of God the Father.
Amen.

A PRAYER FOR GOD’S LIGHT

Eternal God, shed your light on us who watch for you,
that our lips may praise you,
our hearts bless you,
and our lives glorify you,
through Jesus Christ our Saviour.
Amen.
