South African doctors revealed yesterday (Sunday June 23rd) that Nelson Mandela's health is fading.  Mandela was admitted into the hospital earlier this month for a recurring lung infection, which has now entered a critical stage.

President Jacob Zuma said "The doctors are doing everything possible to get his condition to improve and are ensuring that Madliba is well-looked after and is comfortable."  The medical team treating Mandela announced that the 94-year-old has "become critical within the past  24-hours." So prayers are needed.
