We Humbly and Sincerely Pray Oh GOD

A Good Leader with Genuine Leadership...
Leadership is hard to define;
Let us be the ones to define it with justice.
Leadership is like a handful of water;
Let us be the people to share it with those who thirst.

Leadership is not about watching and correcting;
Let us remember it is about listening and connecting.

Leadership is not about telling people what to do;
Let us find out what people want.
Leadership is less about the love of power and more about the power of love.

As we continue to undertake the role of a good leader, let us be affirmed by the servant whom we witness in our Savior, Jesus Christ.
Let us walk in the path He has set and let those who will, follow.

Let our greatest passion be compassion.
Our greatest strength, love.
Our greatest victory, the reward of peace.
In leading, let us never fail to follow.
In loving, let us never fail.

This can possibly happen if we think, act, work and pray hand-in-hand.

Here is our family prayer for the future Philippine President:

Almighty Father,

God of power and might, wisdom and justice,
we praise and thank You for the gifts of life, peace and love.
We humbly beseech that You assist us with Your Spirit of counsel and fortitude.

Bless the next Philippine President and other government leaders and officials
that they may always seek many ways of righteousness, justice and mercy.
Grant that they may be enabled by your powerful protection to lead our country with all honesty and integrity.

Give us, O God, leaders whose hearts are large enough to match the breadth of our own souls and give us souls strong enough to follow such leaders of good vision and wisdom.

Give us the hearts to choose the leaders who will work with other leaders and together will sincerely serve the Filipinos with all their heart – no self-interests, no ulterior motives and no personal desires.

Give us leaders who lead this nation to virtue without seeking to impose our kind of virtue on the virtue of others; leaders those who can differ strength from power, growth from greed, leadership from dominance, and real greatness from the trappings of grandiosity.

Give us a government that provides for the advancement of this country and stability of its economy without taking resources from others to achieve it.

We trust You, Great God, to open our hearts to learn from those to whom You speak in different tongues and to respect the life and words of those to whom You entrusted the good of others – in all nations.

We beg you, Our Dear Father, give us the vision as a people to know where national leadership truly lies, to pursue it diligently, to require it to protect human rights for everyone, everywhere.

We ask these things, through Your Son, Jesus Christ, Our Lord, and Our Blessed Mother, Mama Mary with minds open to Your word and hearts that trust in Your eternal care.
