A Waterworld Prayer

They can say what they want to say about Metro Manila but I love this place and I’m sad that it has become a waterworld.

Please LORD.  Please stop the rains.  Please help us, teach us what to do.  Watching the events unfold is so heartbreaking. Surreal, even. Continuous rains for many days  — so many lives lost, so much suffering.

I pray especially for those who have lost their loved ones.

After a few days, the sun will shine and the roads will be dry. Many of us will resume our routines. But for them…

I also pray for the rescuers.

Many of them have flooded homes too, LORD.  Please spare them from illness, injury, hunger, and discouragement.   Give them that extra strength so that they can continue helping many.

After all these, may they be paid fairly and on time. And may it be that when they go home they will be welcomed by a safe, loving, and grateful family.

In Jesus’ name I pray,

AMEN.
