God Of UNCHANGEABLE Power
15 October 2015
This week inspiration comes from "A New Zeland Prayer Book" which is used for Anglican Church worship in that beautiful country. "He Karakia Mihinare O Aotearoa" is a response to the changes in New Zealand society including the re-emergence of a sense of identity among the Māori people. The Māori language has now been approved as an official language of the nation.
God of UNCHANGEABLE Power,
when you fashioned the world the morning stars
sang together and the host of heaven shouted for joy;
open our eyes to the wonders of creation
and teach us to use all things for good,
to the honour of you glorious name.

He Karakia Mihinare o Aotearoa
Here's a wonderful performance of the hymn, How Great Thou Art/Whaakaria Mai sung in the Maori Language.
