Please Pray For Us

 
 
Our Prayer
 

Archbishop Socrates B. Villegas

Lord we are in great need. Like infants we cry to you, do not abandon us in our distress. We kneel in disbelief! How could you, dear Lord, have allowed this to happen to us who call on your holy name? Have you abandoned us Lord? Are you punishing us for our sins against you?

We have been crying for days and our eyes have run dry but our grief is still very deep, our wounds keep bleeding and our hearts are confused and anxious. Our tears are not enough to wash away our sadness.

Tama na po! Hindi na po namin kaya!

Lord we believe in you and we trust in you in the midst of all these.

Today, we renew our faith and hope in you Lord. The super typhoon was strong but our faith in you in stronger. Houses have been blown away; lives have been swallowed by raging waters; winds have wrought us havoc leaving many orphans—but we will stand from the rubbles and change this nightmare into a new day of new hopes and new dreams and new visions.

You can command the winds and the rains to cease. Please, Lord, spare us from more typhoons and storms and earthquakes! We feel bruised from all sides, battered from top to bottom and beaten up inside and out! Please consider our sufferings more than we can face. Tama na po!

But if it is your will that we endure all these calamities so that we may be cleansed and strengthened as a nation, we bow down to accept you holy and mysterious will. The only grace we seek is for you to assure us—that you love the Philippines; that you will never leave us orphans. Your love is more than enough for us to face all storms. With you dear Lord, we will look at the face of death and remain steadfast and unafraid because love is stronger even than death.

Amen. Amen. May your will be done. Stay with us. Amen.
