Praying for Children: Karakia Mo Ngā Tamariki 21-27 August 2022

Praying for Children week is a PresCare collaboration between Presbyterian Support NZ and Presbyterian Children and Families Ministry.

With the theme of 'become like a child', the resources for Praying for Children 2022 invite you to engage with seven childlike qualities:

  • Wonder
  • Giving Attention 
  • Innocence 
  • Curiosity 
  • Playfulness 
  • Ongoing questions 
  • Trust 

All the resources for Praying for Children are here.


The blog also offers a daily image and reflective prayer on the childlike quality for the day. There is a link with further resources for those who want to linger with the theme for the day.  See the blog.
