Praying for Children/Karakia Mo Ngā Tamariki

20-26 August 2023

For a number of years PresCare, a partnership between the PCANZ and Presbyterian Support, have looked for ways in which our shared faith and commitment can respond to the needs and nurture the wellbeing of children and families in Aotearoa New Zealand.

One of the ways we have done this is through Praying for Children week where we offer resources to PCANZ in order to help the church to reflect on and hold children before God in prayer.

The 2023 Praying for Children resources have the theme of Growing our Children, drawing on the images of gardens and growth to reflect on and pray for children’s life in our midst, in celebration, in lament, in hopefulness and in gratitude. We hope that you will encourage your congregation to join with us in Praying for Children this year.

All of the resources for Praying for Children week can be found on the blog
