Khama’s Prayer 

“We are gathered here today to celebrate this nation’s achievements. We celebrate our democracy. We celebrate our many developments. We celebrate our peace and our unity. Most of all Dear Lord, we celebrate our people, Your people.

As we continue on our journey we seek Your blessings and Your guidance to achieve dignity and prosperity for all our people and to walk and follow a path laid down by Your teachings.

As we cast our eyes to the blue skies, we pray for rain from up there to fall and cause blue water to flow down here. So that the people, black and white; united and proud can rejoice. Amen.”
