A prayer for Nelson Mandela

Great Spirit of all,
We give you thanks
for the life and witness
of Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela,
who has touched our hearts and souls
in countless ways.
Speak your peace
and shower your grace
upon him and his family.
May all be assured
of your steadfast love
enfolding him
as his journey continues with you.
Let us wait with him
with faith, hope and love.
Amen!

The Rev. Janice Stamper
Morris Forks, KY
