Prayer of Thanksgiving as voiced by His Excellency Mr.Olusegun Obasanjo, President of the Republic of Nigeria at the 1st Annual Africa Union Prayer Breakfast on July 10, 2003 in Maputo, Mozambique.
Our Maker, our Redeemer, our Sustainer…our God:
As the great King David has said, “O magnify the Lord with me, and let us exalt His name together!” May this be true in this day, O Lord.
We bow our heads and hearts before You; We acknowledge your absolute sovereignty over all nations; And we exalt your name together.
We thank you for your presence with us in this day; For your marvelous provisions for us in our daily lives; For your promises in Scripture that give us hope; and For your desire to bless us with an inner peace that is uncompromised by the struggles and storms that may surround us.
May we know your peace, O God, And may it unify and bless us in this day. For all these, we give You thanks.
