God sent his Son into the world, not to condemn the world, but to save the world. - John 3:17
Today we are all saddened by the passing of Nelson Mandela. We are grateful for his leadership and the spirit of justice, reconciliation and forgiveness that he brought to us and on which he built our new democracy. While we thank God for him and what he was able to do, we need to remember the sadness that his loved ones feel and pray for them. Do pray also that his passing will cause us as a nation to renew our commitment to the values he embodied. It is also significant that he passed away at a time when we remember the coming into the world of Jesus who is the only Saviour of the world. Let’s pray that the people of our country will turn to him who never dies, who is the King of Kings and Lord of Lords, from whose love we can never be separated, and be saved.

Pray for the government as they plan the funeral and times of mourning for Nelson Mandela. This is obviously a world event and will need careful planning and security measures.
