The Justice and Peace office of the Department for Catholic Social Action from SACBC invites us to pray for South Africa every Friday of the week until the December ANC elective conference. I am emailing you attached the prayer they drafted.
+ Jan De Groef, M.Afr.
Lord, we present our country South Africa before you. We exalt and bless your name for all the blessings, the graces, and love that you have given to us as a nation.
Our country is now weighed down by various social, political and economic problems. We ask you to join us in our boat to calm the storms in our nation.
May your grace challenge our nation and its leadership to repent and turn away from the sin of greed and corruption, which is a result of the worship of money (Matthew 6:24).
Protect all those who are speaking out against greed, patronage, and corruption. Renew our nation and its leadership by the light of the gospel. Bless us with the values and the graces of your kingdom. In Jesus’ name, we pray. Amen.
