At Advent we sing and pray, O come, O come Emmanuel. We ask now, for Emmanuel, God with us, to be with Madiba and Me Graça Come Emmanuel and release our Madiba from the scourge of ill health; Come Emmanuel and offer Madiba everlasting healing; You are a God who knows vulnerability, weakness and frailty, You are Lord of Lords, King of Kings, Lord of life and death, Your power sustains us in life and death.
May your arms of love, stretched wide on the cross for us, Now enfold Madiba, and Graça, with compassion, comfort and the conviction that you will never forsake them but that you will grant Madiba eternal healing and relief from pain and suffering.
And may your blessing rest upon Madiba now and always. Amen.
Yours in the service of our Lord and Saviour
Archbishop Thabo Makgoba.
