Prayer for Christchurch, New Zealand
God of peace
We pray for those caught up in the events in New Zealand, for those killed and wounded, and for those who will mourn.
We pray for the people of the emergency services as they respond, and for community leaders and faith leaders as they work to heal broken communities.
Soften the hearts of those who are motivated by hate and bring peace to your precious people of New Zealand.
In Christ's name. Amen
Michaela Youngson, President of the Methodist Church in Great Britain
