Let’s Extend The Prayer for South Africa
Adrian Kettle, Cape Town – The “Prayer for South Africa” is recited in our parish in Pinelands, Cape Town, after Masses and Communion services.
Some of our members feel that it ought to be recited by all denominations. Perhaps the archdiocesan office(s) could invite other Churches to participate?
Prayer for South Africa
You hold all peoples in your loving and constant care.
We pray for the peoples of South Africa that you may guide us in the ways of Justice and Reconciliation,
to respect and value every person,
to bring healing to the memories of
the past and into present conflicts,
to seek to build bridges that unite all of us in a common purpose and to renew our sense of who we are for each other.
Through Christ our Lord.
