South Africa votes

Today in South Africa, a country very close to my heart, millions of people are already joining long queues in the cold sunshine to cast their vote in the general election.

Pray today for the South Africans, for wisdom as they choose their next leader, and for a smooth and non-violent outcome. I can’t forget what an important day this is, as black, white, indian and coloured citizens vote alongside each other again…

The BBC has a continually updating page on the elections including twitter and blog entries from South Africans. (photo from the BBC)
