Praying Together


As part of our Territorial Strategic Framework, He Waka Eke Noa, The Salvation Army across New Zealand, Fiji, Tonga and Samoa is committed to developing and deepening our spiritual life and our connections with our loving, creator God.

One way we can do this is to pray. We are seeking to strengthen our prayer life both personally and corporately because this is foundational to God’s power being at work amongst us. As an Army of many parts which is actively engaged across many mission fronts, we reaffirm the absolute imperative that we are a people of prayer.

Our desire in calling our territory to He Waka Eke Noa (All of us Together) – Praying Together is to help us go deeper together, celebrate God in our lives and seek direction for the future.

To help us with this call to prayer you will find resources on this page to help:

  • Run local prayer meetings in your corps, centre and community
  • Information about Online Prayer meetings that will be held throughout the year
  • And resources for a special prayer-focused Sunday on 29 October 2023

We would also love to hear from you about what you are doing to encourage prayer where you are. Please feel free to send stories, photos or prayer resources to Liz Gainsford ( for possible inclusion on this website.

Our beautiful logo (which is available for your use in the resource section below) picks up on the theme of being rooted in Christ and the imagery of Jeremiah 17:7-8 of trees being planted by the river and roots going deep into the true source of life. May we each experience God in a deeper way as we unite in Praying Together this year.
