Sometimes, the best way to comfort someone in need is to say, "I am praying for you."
Prayer In Time of Calamity (by Cardinal Tagle)
God, our Father,
in faith, we acknowledge You Care for us, Your children.
In hope, we trust in Your divine providence
to give us wisdom and courage as we face the challenges of life.
In love, we invoke Your help and guidance
during these difficult days of death and destruction in our land.
Grant eternal peace to those who lost their lives.
Embrace the children who died in their innocence.
Console those who are grieving.
Help those who are hurt and cure those who are sick.
Encourage those who suffer
the destruction of their homes and properties
as they rise from the ruins and rebuild their future.
Bless all those who extend a helping hand
to those in need of food, shelter, and clothing,
and provide an assuring presence to those who are lost and confused.
At Your command the wind and the seas obey,
raise Your hand, Almighty God
and spare us from other natural disasters.
Teach us to be responsible stewards of Your creation.
At this time of crisis, move us to share more and to love more.
Let the Holy Spirit renew our land and people.
Grant this through Christ our Lord. Amen.
Mary, Our Mother of hope, pray for us.
St. Joseph, pray for us.
San Lorenzo Ruiz, pray for us.
San Pedro Calungsod, pray for us.
Blessed Jose Maria de Manila, pray for us.
A radio ad says, "Sapat na ang ating nakita at narinig tungkol sa bagyong Yolanda. Tulong at hindi awa ang kailangan ng mga kababayan natin sa Bisaya. Please help in any way you can."
