For Good Government

Spirit of justice, creator Spirit

Help us to make and keep this country

A home for all its different peoples,

And grant to our government and all its representatives

Imagination, skill and energy

That there may grow amongst us aroha and peace.

            (aroha means love in New Zealand Maori language)

We make this prayer through Jesus Christ. Amen.
