Prayer for Cory
Lord, today you have given us a mighty gift in the person of Corazon Aquino. She was a housewife and yet she became president. A presidency na hindi niya ginusto ngunit ibinigay Ninyo sa amin.
She was a simple person and yet she overcame mighty powers in this country. During her presidency, Lord, she kept her faith in You. Palagi siyang tinutugis at nakikita po natin noong panahon na iyon, she was always being criticized, being abused. Public media tried to weaken her confidence, politicians tried to ruin her administration and weaken the country. And yet all the time, she was always with You and she always looked upon You.
This woman was given to us by You Lord and we, perhaps, have not been worthy to receive her. Today, we ask that we be worthy. This country that cannot seem to put itself behind the national interest. This country that cannot overcome its indifference. This country that cannot overcome its disrespect for one another. This country that could not overcome its partisanship.
Lord, we ask that You give us the gift that You gave Cory Aquino, that we be worthy of this country. That we live with her life as an example, and that of her husband, as our inspiration to make this country a better nation. Amen.
