Praying for the Philippines

Heavenly Father, We ask your blessing on us today, and especially we ask you to bless the people of the Philippines after suffering so much devastation this past week as a result of a terrible typhoon. Give a sense of comfort to all those who lost loved ones, those who lost just about everything they had. May God reward the victims with the gift of eternal life in heaven. As many natives of this great archipelago grieve, mostly devout Catholic and certainly dedicated Christians, we ask You Lord to console them, give them hope for a better tomorrow, and as they try to re-build their lives, be with them in the coming weeks and months.

Help those who are homeless, hungry, thirsty, and in need of almost everything. May we think of them and support them by our prayers and donations. Give strength to all the service men and woman, nurses and doctors, rescue workers who are doing their best to restore some kind of normalcy in Tacloban and other surrounding areas effected by the typhoon. May the Blessed Mother and her Son Jesus protect the people of the Philippines - may Mary give them the courage and hope to persevere in the midst of the heartache they experienced. We ask this prayer through Christ our Lord, Amen.
