Prayer for South Africa - April 2017
Lord, grant us a vision for our land;
a land of justice, where none shall prey on others;
a land of plenty, where poverty shall cease to fester;
a land of work, where all can be employed;
a land of openness, where all are accepted as equal;
a land of healing, where hatred and racial prejudice exist no more;
a land of peace which is free of violence;
and grant us grace to work with you to bring this vision to fruition;
and bring this vision to fruition, for Jesus Christ’s sake. Amen.
Together with many others, we in the church pray daily for South Africa and our leaders (political, spiritual, in business and every sphere of life). We are in a time of serious leadership crisis! Here are two statements from the South African Council of Churches.
