James' Prayer for the Nation, New Zealand :
뉴질랜드를 위해 제임스가 기도를 하고 있습니다.
Our Father and Our God, we praise You for Your goodness to our nation, giving us blessings far beyond what we deserve.
Yet we know all is not right with New Zealand.
We deeply need a moral and spiritual renewal to help us meet the many problems we face.
Convict us of sin.
Help us to turn to You in repentance and faith.
Set our feet on the path of Your righteousness and peace.
We pray today for our nation's leaders, the Prime Minister and Cabinet Ministers.
Give them the wisdom to know what is right, and the courage to do it.
You have said, "Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord."
May this be a new era of hope for New Zealand, as we humble ourselves and acknowledge
You alone as our Savior and Lord. This we pray in Your holy name, Amen.
From My Friday Prayer Meeting Friends :
May our leaders, as well as our fellow citizens, be guided to walk in God's footsteps of righteousness. May my own thoughts and actions in every moment be in accordance with His will and guidance.
