A prayer for typhoon victims

This prayer originated from Fr. Stephen Cuyos of Happy Faith and Mommy Ana of the Filipina Mom in Denmark is sharing this to me.

Prayer for the victims of the typhoon Ondoy (Ketsana)

Loving Father, you are our shelter and our hope. We come to you with hearts full of trust in your love and mercy.

We pray for the victims of tropical storm Ondoy. May those who have lost homes and properties find shelter, enough food and clean water. Comfort those who are traumatized and those who are grieving for the loss of their families, neighbors and friends. Bless those who are sick and those who are injured that their health may be restored and their wounds cured. May you lead all who are stranded or lost back to those who love them. Guide the hands of the rescuers, the doctors and nurses and other volunteers and give them strength as they serve others with joy.

May this calamity bring people closer together, to help each other and to care for the environment. Give us the faith, the hope and the love to carry on. This we ask through Jesus Christ, Our Lord. Amen.

I’m sharing this to all my online buddies.

    I pray too that their recovery will be fast and their lives will get back to normal as soon as possible. Amen.

    Hi Yami. Our house in Manila was spared naman. No flood in our subdivision except for three streets which were reached by the flood. Our street was elevated so ok lang. But the thing is, when Ondoy happened, we were on a vacation, so we weren’t in Manila. We saw about it in the news na lang. I really, really pray that everyone affected recovers soon enough para normalcy in their lives will be back. And it’s really good to know too that you and your family were spared and are all right; it’s such great news amidst all the heart wrenching news.

    Take care, Yami, and have a blessed day! 🙂
