Prayers for Nelson Mandela

Far away from elections and US politics, I would ask my fellow Red Staters to take a moment to pray for Nelson Mandela, a true African that actually deserved the Nobel Peace Prize.

President Bush II awarded him the Presidential Medal of Freedom, and some may take umbrage that he was also awarded the Order of Lenin.  Nonetheless, he is a great man who has suffered more and accomplished more than most of our paltry politicians.

Please pray for him.

Note:  I cannot doubt but that President Obama might take advantage of a sad outcome to divert attention from his planned $100 million expedition to Africa.  I pray for a better outcome, and hope RedState would be in the forefront of joining me in my prayers.
