I hate storms. And the Philippines is currently bracing itself for one of the strongest, if not THE strongest storms this year.
My head is literally pounding right now from anxiety, and my heart is aching for all my countrymen living in the provinces that lie straight in the storm’s path–especially Bohol, where I am sure the people there have not yet recovered from the devastating earthquake that hit them last month.
My only hope is the Lord hears all our prayers, and that He spares us, especially those who have already lost so much.
“Almighty and Loving Father, Creator of the Universe, we fervently ask Your Divine and Infinite Mercy to take control of the rain and typhoon. We put our trust in Your power. We implore You to embrace our country. Calm the weather as You did with Your Disciples at the middle of the sea. In Jesus’ mighty name we pray. Amen.”
