A time to tear
and a time to mend,
a time to be silent
and a time to speak,
a time to love
and a time to hate,
a time for war
and a time for PEACE.
Almighty Powerful Lord, thank you for the life and testimony of Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela.
He made a difference!
Mandela’s writings inspired change during his silence.
His voice brought justice,
He showed us how to change hatred into love,
He was our leader in the war against prejudice, discrimination and sins of a house divided.
Peace grew from his love, patience and perseverance.
Help me live Mandela and our Lord’s peacemaker legacy.
Give me the courage to sow peace, hope and brotherly love.
Use me to make a difference! Amen.
