The Filipinos' prayer of hope amidst calamities and death

The Filipinos' prayer of hope amidst calamities and death

"He who goes out weeping, bearing the seed for sowing, shall come home with shouts of joy, bringing his sheaves with him." - Psalm 126:6

In this bout of rainy days and difficult times, amidst all the killings and the crimes, the hope for something better to come is the only thing that keeps us sane. Today, as we hit the rock bottom in this sea of despair and hopelessness, let us make our daily call to God and ask for the gift of hope to buoy us through the day.

Heavenly Father, today, we, your humble servants call to say,

thank you, oh Lord, for this brand new day.

Thank you for the blessings beyond compare

and for Your presence no matter where we are.

For want of hope, today, we pray

We need your light, Lord, in every way.

When days are dark and lost, we pray

to be filled with your light to push out the grey.

Some say that before the light, the sky is darkest

We pray for light, as it is when our hearts are weakest

In times when we are most helpless

We ask for Your presence, love, and kindness.

Lord, we pray that this is true,

for these days everything seems dark.

Amidst the killings and the crimes,

With wings of truth, we pray that hope flies.

We pray to be filled with your light from head to toe.

To bask in your glory, that we would know

that all is right in this world of ours,

that hope will come as we face Your trials.

Dear Lord, give us a small glimmer of hope, and light

That Your real purpose, we may recognise

as I feel alone and powerless

Give us strength to go beyond this helplessness,

Help us be faithful and strong

Allow us to have the faith and strength

Fill up our hearts with joy

that we may uncover the miracle of life itself.

In your name, we pray,

Amen.
