The Catholic Bishop of Christchurch Paul Martin SM was invited to pray. Click the link to join in prayer:

United in prayer we turn to you O God 
knowing that you are calling us, your people,
into deeper unity and experience of faith. 
 
As your people united in Christ across Canterbury, Westland and Chatham Islands 
heal all that keeps us from the unity you desire for us.
 
Gathered today with your servant and our brother Peter
Strengthen in him his gift of faithful leadership
that his ministry may serve to unite people of every church community
bringing deep and lasting unity
among all who seek you in this place.
