Prayer for Waitangi Day from our national Anthem
People of every creed and race,
Gather here before Your face,
Asking You to bless this place,

From dissension, envy, hate,
And corruption guard our state,
Make our country good and great,
God defend New Zealand.
Mā tō mātou Ariki mā Hehu Karaiti, Āmene
Special Character Focus:
Prayer and Charism.
This week our focus for R.E teaching is REVERENCE Gospel- Colossians 3:12, Action point: "Love one another". "Kindness towards each other". "reverence" and "Set your hearts..where Christ is." Our call to always have a clean heart. As Christians we are called to be virtuous and righteous, to be filled with love for Jesus, Others, and Yourself.
