Tobeka Madiba Zuma and her hubby, former President Jacob Zuma, spent Tuesday with their daughter on her 12th birthday.
The former first lady shared photos of the special day on social media along with a touching prayer to her daughter.
She captioned the post:
"Happy Birthday Nqonqo. Thanks Daddy for making it that special. Father God, You knew her before she was conceived and loved her before she was born and now praise and thank You that she is developing a simple, child-like trust in You – but how I long that she comes to deep and steadfast faith in Christ, which I know is even more important to You than it is to us, for we know that You love her, with an everlasting tenderness – a love that even surpasses my own deep affection for her.
"I pray that she may develop into a virtuous young woman with an unshakable trust in You, and a pure and tender heart. May she grow in grace and develop integrity; truth, faithfulness and gentleness.. with a heart of compassion for others - that is so attractive in a young woman of God. I pray for her protection from those that would seek to blemish her loveliness in this increasingly fallen world and praise and thank You for the love and joy that my beautiful daughter has brought into our lives, in Jesus' name I pray."
