Prayer Tag For Typhoon Victims

3 October 2009By 20 Comments

Got this tag from Ana of the Filipina Mom in Denmark.  There’s nothing we could do but pray for the victims of the recent typhoon that badly hit some major cities in the Philippines.  Fr. Stephen Cuyos of Happy Faith started this prayer.

Prayer for the victims of the typhoon Ondoy (Ketsana)

Loving Father, you are our shelter and our hope. We come to you with hearts full of trust in your love and mercy.

We pray for the victims of tropical storm Ondoy. May those who have lost homes and properties find shelter, enough food and clean water. Comfort those who are traumatized and those who are grieving for the loss of their families, neighbors and friends. Bless those who are sick and those who are injured that their health may be restored and their wounds cured. May you lead all who are stranded or lost back to those who love them. Guide the hands of the rescuers, the doctors and nurses and other volunteers and give them strength as they serve others with joy.

May this calamity bring people closer together, to help each other and to care for the environment. Give us the faith, the hope and the love to carry on. This we ask through Jesus Christ, Our Lord.

I’m tagging Joy, Amor, Maricris, Juler and other Filipino bloggers who want to spread this prayer tag.

    It really does bring us more closer. I also help in the rescue operation since I too experienced being save by them. I got so inspired that were really persons willing to help without expecting anything. I thought they only exist on children stories. LOL
