Let us pray for Africa

Lagbaja is a musician from Nigeria. In the lyrics to his song “Bad Leadership” from the album C’ est Un African Thing he has a prayer. We share it below for those who feel it is important to “Pray for Africa.”

Let us pray for Africa
If you love Africa…let’s go
Oh God of all heaven and earth
and all creatures within
please grant us succor
empower us
as you did David
deliver us
from the hands of the oppressors
so that some day
wherever we may be
in Africa
or the diaspora
Africans will be free
and Africa will be healthy
oh God almighty
please give us great leaders
leaders with vision
give them to us oh lord
and deliver us
from the hands of bad leaders
bad leaders like
bad leaders like
you know them oh God
we don’t have to mention their names

The Mhotep Corporation uses its Keyamsha The Awakening brand to heighten perceptions and expand awareness. By producing content that engages, entertains and educates we create value for value relationships with our audience for mutual benefit. Mhotep is derived from the name of the architect and builder of the first pyramid in Kemet, so-called ancient Egypt. I formed the Mhotep Corporation in 2003 to produce and distribute 3D animation videos based on traditional African stories. Since then it has evolved to being a media production company including books. In a previous life I worked as a systems analyst developing solutions for government and multinational organizations. Born and educated in Washington, D.C. I have traveled to several places including Haiti, the Bahamas, Mexico, Canada, Nigeria (several times), Ethiopia (several times), Benin, Togo, and South Africa. I am married with three children.
