Thoughts from the Chaplain

Nelson Mandela International Day

Date: Jul 18, 2018 00:00:00

On 18th July 1918, Nelson Mandela was born.  He became the first black president of South Africa but he was so much more!

A wonderful 4 minute poem delivered with passion for the man they call Madiba!


Loving God, in a time of turmoil and confusion, 

you raised up your servant Nelson Mandela,

giving him wisdom, patience, and a reconciling heart,

that he might lead South Africa into stability and peace:


Hear our prayer,

and give us wise and faithful leaders,

in all areas of our lives,

that through their efforts and service,

your people may be blessed

and your will be done.


And, if it be your will,

call each of us to lead,

each according to their talents and strengths.


We pray this in the name of the Father, and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. AMEN
