Teresa Kok: “I didn’t do anything wrong” (Photo courtesy of her blog)
Just off the phone with Teresa Kok and she sounds happy to be back.
I asked her if the police had given her a tough time and kept her awake at night with interrogations and all the usual things they tend to do with ISA detainees.
She said, “No, because I hadn’t done anything wrong. They couldn’t find anything.”
Anyway, she was delighted to hear that so many people had been praying for her release.

A Prayer for Teresa
The Lord is my shepherd;
I have everything I need.
He lets me see a country of justice and peace
and directs my steps towards his land.
He gives me new power.
He guides me in the paths of victory,
as he has promised.
Even if a full-scale violent confrontation breaks out
I will not be afraid Lord,
if you are with me.
Your shepherd’s power and love protects me.
You prepare for me my freedom,
where all my enemies can see it;
you welcome me as an honoured guest
and fill my cup with righteousness and peace.
I know that your goodness and love will
be with me all my life;
and your liberationg love will be my home
as long as I love.
By Zephania Kameeta, based on Psalm 25 in “Why O Lord
– Psalms and Sermons” (World Council of Churches)
“Please convey my love and gratitude to all those who thought of me and prayed for my early release, ” she said, adding that Malaysians need to make sure the others are freed as well.
She has described her detention as being politically motivated. “My experience in detention has convinced me of the need to change the government.”
