Prayer for New Zealand

O Almighty God, * Who in Thy infinite goodness * sent Thy only begotten Son into this world * to open again the gates of heaven * and to teach us how to know love and serve Thee, * have mercy on Thy people who live in New Zealand. * Grant to all the precious gift of faith * and unite them in the one true church founded by Thy Divine Son, * that they may love, serve and worship Thee in this world * and obtain for themselves eternal happiness in Heaven. * Through the same Christ Our Lord. Amen.
