“THE PRAYER OF 65”

 

GOD,

GIVE US STRENGTH TO STAND GUARD

GIVE US LIFE TO FILL-IN GAPS

GIVE US MORE WEAPONS FOR THE BATTLES

HERE AND BEYOND…

 

YOU ALONE KNOWS

YOU ALONE PREVAILS

YOUR GREATEST LOVE OF SAVING THE HUMAN KIND

IS THE GREATEST AND MOST ENDEARING LOVE OF ALL.

 

YOU DIE EVERY YEAR FOR US,

THROUGH YOUR SON JESUS CHRIST

AND WE WILL BE HERE IN HIS PLACE

UNTIL HE RISES UP AGAIN

ON THE DAY OF EASTER SUNDAY.

 

IN THE DARKEST HOURS, WE WILL STAY.

WE CEASE TO LIVE

BECAUSE WE LOVE YOU FOREVER

AND WE WILL PREVAIL THROUGH YOUR GRACE.

 

MAY THE FILIPINO PEOPLE LINGER ON

AND SURVIVE THE MANY TRIALS AND TRIBULATIONS

THAT THIS WORLD BRINGS

AND AMID THE MANY DISASTERS AND DIFFERENCES IN BELIEFS-

THE FILIPINOS, WE PRAY, MUST SURVIVE.

 

WE BOW AND KNEEL TO YOU, OUR GOD.

FOLLOW YOUR COMMANDMENTS

AND LOVE YOU-

 

UNTIL ETERNITY.

 

(prayer of “65”, written by the gift sent upon by a ‘mother’, in an unknown space and time).*
