When the power of love overcomes the love of power, the world will know peace. – Jimi Hendrix

I was supposed to write my blog early this morning but I got distracted by all the news not only here in the Philippines but in other countries as well.  This is the time when what we need are lots of prayers to help those who are badly in need of them.

Muammar Gadaffi vows to crush a revolt which is threatening his more than forty years’ rule. There is violence everywhere,  civilians are hurt and our Filipino OFWs who are only there to earn a decent wage for their families at home are trapped as well. The UN Security Council should do something about this , fast. Gaddafi called the protesters “rats and mercenaries”.  This uprising might escalate into a civil war. Let us just pray for  the safety of  all  overseas Filipino workers.  Here is the latest news on Libya courtesy of  CNN .

According to the latest news, 75 people have died due to the recent earthquake in Christchurch, New Zealand.  And there are more people, including Filipinos too who are still trapped in the rubble.  It would probably take sometime before they could clear the debris and find missing people inside the collapsed buildings.  Here in the home front,  Mount Bulusan is acting up again.

We need prayers, more prayers for all the people who are affected by these calamities and uprisings. I am sharing with you a beautiful prayer  for peace.


O Almighty God,
the Father of all humanity,
turn, we pray, the hearts of all peoples and their rulers,
that by the power of your Holy Spirit
peace may be established among the nations
on the foundation of justice, righteousness and truth;
through him who was lifted up on the cross
to draw all people to himself,
your Son Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

— William Temple (1881-1944)
