Prayer for New Zealand:

Heavenly Father, we come before You in the Name of Jesus on behalf of New Zealand. We pray for a shield of divine protection over this country and for insight into and uncovering of all activities and policies that are not of You.

We thank You, Lord, for bringing democracy to our nation and ask for changing the voices of influence to speak in agreement with Your Word. We ask You to send labourers, filled with the spirit of wisdom and might, to surround our leaders with godly counsel and advice.

We thank You that the good news of the Gospel can be published in our land, and Your Word prevails and grows mightily in the hearts and lives of Your people, and that Christian TV, radio, publications, are able to be shared, unhindered, and uncensored.

Psalm 1:1 (for our leaders): Make their hearts and ears attentive to godly counsel, 2Chr 20:32 (that we as a nation would do what is right in Your sight).

Our National Anthem verse 2:

Men of every creed and race,

Gather here before Thy face,

Asking Thee to bless this place,

God defend our free land.

From dissension, envy, hate,

And corruption guard our State.

Make our country good and great,

God defend New Zealand.
