Prayer For Nelson Mandela

The Archbishop of York, Dr John Sentamu, praying.

Monday 24th June 2013

The Archbishop of York has today released the following prayer for Nelson Mandela...

Gracious Father,
You gave up your Son
out of love for your world:
Look with mercy on Madiba Mandela;
And on all your children in South Africa.
As they reflect on Christ's Death and Resurrection,
may they know eternal peace
through the shedding of our Saviour's blood,
Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
