Pray for the Nation ~ Inoi Mo Te Motu
Intercessors for New Zealand
Pray for the Nation was started by Brian Caughley in January 1972, after receiving a word from God to call Christians to "Pray for the Nation". After a few years, when other similar Intercessors organisations started in several other countries, it became also known as Intercessors for New Zealand. Both names are still used today.
Pray for the Nation specifically aims to encourage prayer, and present Bible teaching, which exhorts Christians to pray regularly and specifically for their nation – for revival and evangelism, the Church, the Government and the Nation.
The vision is based, in part, on the following Scriptures:
2 Chronicles 7:14; Proverbs 14:34; Jeremiah 29:7 and 1 Timothy 2:1-4
The AIMS of Pray for the Nation are:
- To glorify God by uniting Christians throughout the nation in praying regularly and specifically for our nation, the government and the Church; for revival and evangelism.
- To encourage them to continue to pray for revival until God sends such a revival.
- To instruct in the ministry of intercession, so that Christians will be more effective in intercessory prayer.
- To share with Christians specific prayer suggestions related to these aims, so that they can pray more intelligently and specifically.
