Community of St Martin @ St Chad's

Anglican Parish of Sandringham and Mt Roskill

Welcome, Kia ora, Namaste, Marhaba

Prayer for our Muslim brothers and sisters


Loving God and Father, we cry to you for our broken world, and for those who seek their own way through violence and threat.

We pray to you for the ones who have been wounded by these wicked acts of violence: young and old, at home or on holiday. Heal their bodies and hearts; console them with your presence and, at the same time, take away any hatred and a desire for revenge.

We pray that you would draw near and comfort the families and friends of those who have lost their lives. Enable them, in your mercy, to seek refuge in you as they grieve.

We pray for the police and intelligence services - that you would enable them to find and prosecute those responsible, and work to prevent future attacks. We pray for the government - that you would inspire them to govern with wisdom and determination.

We pray for our Muslim community in Aotearoa-New Zealand - that you would protect them from unjust aggression and discrimination.

And we pray that you would touch the hearts of those who commit acts of terror - that they may recognise the evil of their actions and may turn to the way of peace and goodness, of respect for the life and dignity of every human being, regardless of religion, origin, wealth or poverty.

Through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

“I asked for strength,

and God gave me difficulties to make me strong,

I asked for wisdom,

and God gave me problems to solve,

I asked for prosperity,

and God gave me a brain and braun to work,

I asked for courage,

and God gave me danger to overcome,

I asked for love,

and God gave me troubled people to help,

I asked for favours,

and God gave me opportunities.


I received nothing I asked for but everything I needed.”
