He inoi mō te mate urutā

Puritia mātou, e te Atua pai,
i raro i te atārangi o to atawhai
i tēnei wā o te awangawanga.
Ukaukaina, ā awhinatia mātou kia kaua e wehi,
ā, whakarewaina ērā katoa ka taimahatia;
kia koa mātou i to whakaahurutanga
me te mōhio e kore rawa tētahi mea e kaha ki te momotu i a mātou i to aroha
i roto i a Karaiti Ihu, i tō mātou Ariki. Āmine. 

A prayer about the COVID-19 pandemic

Keep us, good Lord,
under the shadow of your mercy
in this time of uncertainty and distress.
Sustain and support the anxious and fearful,
and lift up all who are brought low;
that we may rejoice in your comfort
knowing that nothing can separate us from your love
in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Amen.

Mō ērā ka noho taratahi / For those in isolation

Mō ērā ka noho taratahi

E te Atua o te aroha,
kia tata mai ki ērā kei te māuiui, kei te wehi, kei te noho taratahi hoki.
Whakamārietia te hunga e noho mokemoke ana;
Homai te tūmanako ki te hunga e awangawanga ana;
Whakamāramatia te hunga e noho pōuri ana;
Ko Ihu Karaiti hoki tō mātou Ariki,
tēnā i whakamamaetia motuhake runga i te rīpeka,
engari ka kīngi tahi me koe i roto i te korōria. Āmine

For those in isolation

God of compassion,
be close to those who are ill, afraid or in isolation.
In their loneliness, be their consolation;
in their anxiety, be their hope;
in their darkness, be their light;
through him who suffered alone on the cross,
but reigns with you in glory,
Jesus Christ our Lord.
Amen.

E te Karaiti aroha, ka aroha koe ki ērā e mate ana
ka whakaorangia ērā e māuiui ana ā-tinana, ā-hinengaro hoki.
Tirohia ērā e wehi ana i tēnei wā.
Awhinatia mātou kia whakakorengia ngā whakaaro me ngā mahi
ka momotu mātou i a koe, i tēnā, i tēnā anō o mātou hoki.
Homai ki a mātou te atawhai kia ora
kia pūmau ki tāu oati ka noho tonu koe ki a mātou, āke, ake, ake. Āmine.

E te Ariki, e Ihu Karaiti,
i whakaakona mātou kia aroha ki ō mātou hoa,
me te tiaki i ērā e mate ana,
pērā kei te tiaki mātou i a koe.
Whakakahangia mātou i tēnei wā o te awangawanga,
kia whakamārietia ērā e wehi ana, kia tiakina ērā e taimaha ana,
me te whakaahuru i te hunga noho taratahi
ka arohaina rātou e mātou, e koe hoki,
mō te whakaaro ki to ingoa. Āmine.

Loving Jesus, you are compassionate to those in need
and heal the sick in body and mind.
Look kindly on those who are fearful at this time.
Help us all to put away all thoughts and actions
that separate us from you and from one another.
Give us grace to live our lives
confident in your promise that you are with us always.
Amen.

Lord Jesus Christ,
you taught us to love our neighbour,
and to care for those in need
as if we were caring for you.
In this time of anxiety, give us strength

and to assure the isolated 
of our love, and your love,
for your name’s sake.
Amen.

Mō ērā e noho pani ana

E te Matua
kei te mōhio koe i ngā whakaaro o ō mātou ngākau, ā, ka pāpōuri tahi koe me mātou.
Ngaukino nei te mamae o te matenga o ērā i arohaina e mātou:
ki te riri mātou mō te mate kua tau ki runga i a mātou,
ki te whakangākau mātou mō ngā kupu whakamārie,
engari he uaua te whakarongo atu,
tahuringia ake tō mātou pōuri ki te ora;
me to mātou mamae ki te tūmanako,
ki a Ihu Karaiti tō mātou Ariki. Āmine. 

For those who mourn

Father,
you know our hearts and share our sorrows.
We are hurt by our parting from those whom we loved:

turn our grief to truer living,
our affliction to firmer hope
in Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

whakarongo mai ki ā mātou inoi, whakamoemiti hoki
mō ērā katoa ka maumaharatia i tēnei rā;
whakaritea i roto i a rātou te koronga o tōu aroha;
ā, kawea ake tātou ngātahi ki tōu koa mutunga kore;
ko Ihu Karaiti hoki tō mātou Ariki. Āmine. 

For those who have died

Almighty and eternal God,
from whose love in Christ we cannot be parted,
either by death or life:
hear our prayers and thanksgivings
for all whom we remember this day;
fulfil in them the purpose of your love;
and bring us all, with them, to your eternal joy;
through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
