Nelson Mandela, who tirelessly fought for an end to the injustice of apartheid

Gracious Father,You gave up your Son
 out of love for your world:
 Look with mercy on Madiba Mandela;
 And on all your children in South Africa.
 As they reflect on Christ's Death and Resurrection,
 may they know eternal peace
 through the shedding of our Saviour's blood,
 Jesus Christ our Lord.
 Amen.
