National Prayer for Peace

O Lord our God, maker of heaven and earth, the sky and the seas, look kindly on us, your children of the Philippine islands, our home, now beset with tensions over our West Philippine Sea.

We pray to you for peace over that part of our islands and waters.

We pray that questions over it may be resolved through justice and respect for people’s rights.

We pray that no harm may be done to our marine creatures and habitat.

We pray that our fellow Filipinos, protecting our islands and seas, be kept safe from natural and manmade disasters.

Loving God, you are our wonderful Creator, our generous provider of good things. Send your Holy Spirit of wisdom and understanding to our leaders, that they may resolve this crisis with courage and in the spirit of dialogue. Help us all to remain faithful to your word and obedient to your will always.

This we ask through Christ, Our Lord.

 

Amen.
