Prayer from the Government

Almighty God & Father, we praise You and we thank You for the many blessings You have given us. With Your might, You created the earth and enriched it with Your providence. You have given us the earth to cultivate, so that we may gather its fruits to sustain life.

Grant us O Lord, wisdom so that we in government can guide our people in recognizing Your gifts and making good and proper use of these gifts, as well as protecting them from abuse. May we, also in government, be guided in our efforts to strike a balance in providing the needs, safety and welfare of our people in a reasonable, affordable and sustainable manner.

May You instill in everyone’s heart and mind that we just borrowed this earth from the next generation, so that our thoughts and actions will always be geared towards its conservation – that conservation is not doing without but doing well.

Lord, even as our country’s emissions has minimal impact to global warming, and in fact, the Philippines is among the most vulnerable countries to climate change, we ask for enlightenment, so that in our own small way we can still contribute to saving and preserving our dear mother earth.

As we thank God for His bounty, let us learn also as the Gospel teaches, to seek first God’s way of holiness then all we need will be given us besides.

May God, the source of every good, forgive us for our shortcomings and failures, and continuously bless us and give success to our work, so that we may receive the joy of His gifts and praise His name now and forever.
This we ask through Christ our Lord. Amen.
