In memory of Nelson Mandela - 1918 to 2013

Liberating God,
We thank you for the resilience and hopeful faith
of those who struggle for dignity and fullness of life.
We know that you raise up those who are cast down,
and free those who are bound.

Your Son Jesus walks with us to show us the path to authentic freedom.
May we appreciate what has been given to us,
and be strengthened to overcome all within us that enslaves.

Send us your Spirit,
and by that Spirit set us free from all that inhibits, alienates and divides us,
so that with voices united we can proclaim your love to the world.
God of life, lead us to justice and peace.
