There will be storms, my child,
there will be storms;
And with each tempest,
you will seem to stand alone against cruel winds;
but with time, the rage and fury shall subside.
As the sky clears before you open your eyes,
you will find your feet dry
because I held you up;
you will find your body warm
because I embraced you in the cold night;
and you will realize that you're not alone
because you are clinging to Someone;
You would have never known, but for storms.
Prayer for Victims of Storm "Ondoy"
Our Heavenly Father, compassionate and merciful God,
Please spare and show compassion to the Filipino people,
the inhabitants of the 7,100 islands from Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao
particularly the residents from the provinces of Rizal, Laguna,
Quezon, Pampanga and of Metro Manila .
We beg you to save every Filipino people from every calamity,
from the winds of storm and the heavy rains,
from the waters of the sea, and from every sorrow and evil,
And send deliverance and redemption
to all those who call upon Thy Name.
Save them from the floodwaters, landslides and rescue them from the abyss,
Lead them to a place of safety, and do not abandon them,
And in Your abundant mercy
send them redemption in the measure of their loss,
And complete healing to the sick and those in pain,
and comfort to their souls and spirit.
May all the Filipino people and of the world
recognize that You are the Supreme King,
Who rules the powers of the universe
and shows mercy to His creatures,
who praise Your great Name,
