KARAKIA: New Zealand In Prayer

KARAKIA beats the drum for expressions of prayer that look, sound, feel and smell like New Zealand. We are a resource pool, cheering on the rhythms of prayer throughout our land. A resurgence of prayer has swelled around the world and Aotearoa is adding her unique voice to the global God-conversation.

Prayer is deep: it’s the way we live, it is the rhythm of relating to God, people and creation. KARAKIA champions this way of living, a way of language-ing and doing life, that is unique to New Zealand.

So, on this site you’ll find the promotion of stories and metaphors and ways to pray, and things to pray for, that sound Maori; that sound Kiwi; that sound like New Zealand.

KARAKIA: our story, our prayers.
