Archbishop of York's Prayer Marking Life of Nelson Mandela

Thursday 5th December 2013

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.

John Sentamu
Archbishop of York
