My Prayer for South Africa 1994 (and especially Southern Africa)

South Africa: "the Beloved Country"

“We join in prayer to celebrate this new nation and surrender its destiny to you.

We give thanks in our hearts to the founding of this vibrant nation of diverse peoples,

a beautiful yet tragic land built upon the rivers of blood, that flowed from our forefathers;

yet still flow today…a ‘happy sad’ land of such contrasts.

We give thanks for and bless the souls of those,

who came before us and prepared this nation,

to nurture and to save it;

because so many gave their lives for it,

some selflessly and many needlessly.”

 For the full prayer go to
