Whispered petition of a Filipino heart

Whispered petition of a Filipino heart

"I have set the Lord always before me. Because He is at my right hand, I will not be shaken." - Psalm 16:8

Prayers are the words of the heart. With a steady and trusting heart to offer, let us start our day with this symphony of prose - as we ask for encouragement and seek God's presence while we plow through the day's endeavors and aspirations. 

Lord, thank you so much for another day of life;

we thank you for the beautiful sunrise.

For every creature, every plant,

every rock, and grain of sand;

the pitter-patter of every drops of rain,

proclaim the blessings of Your glorious name.

We thank you for our family,

for every time spent with each other;

for all the hurdle and uncertainty

and the unconditional love and laughter.

The hardships of our careless ways

O Lord, remind us of Your unending grace

“Each one should test their own actions. Then they can take pride in themselves alone, without comparing themselves to someone else.” - Galatians 6:4

Lord, you know all our struggles

Teach us to choose only Your way

Carry us in our moments of weakness

Forgive us if we make mistakes

Draw us close to You in worship

That we may lift our hearts in prayer

Hear the cry of those who yearn for love

Listen to those who yearn for justice

Grant the cry of those who yearn for change

That we may feel Your healing hand

Awaken us in body and spirit

As we tread into this wondrous day.

Amen.
