Dureza’s Prayer

“Bless the President so we will have forbearance, good health, the tolerance to lead this nation up to 2010, and perhaps, who knows, even beyond,” he said.

Philippine Press Secretary Jesus G. Dureza said this during his opening prayer in a cabinet meeting. This prayer created a buzz on this week’s news headlines and TV programs. They even asked all the cameramen not to release the video file containing the prayer. Why? maybe this prayer has something to do with the issue that the President’s is interested in term extension by amending the Constitution.

It’s good to know that our leaders pray, but what makes me sad was they were not serious enough with their prayers. Let us not just pray by just merely utterances of the mouth but what is in our hearts and what the Lord’s will is.

Let’s pray for this nation. Let sincerely cry out to God that the Lord will raise up righteous leaders to lead this nation. Leaders that we will not have personal interest for this nation but his concern is the interest of all people. We might be discouraged with what is happening in the leadership right now but let us be reminded to pray, pray, and pray. That’s the best thing we can do.

When you pray, you shall not be as the hypocrites, for they love to stand and pray in the synagogues and in the corners of the streets, that they may be seen by men. Most certainly, I tell you, they have received their reward.
Matthew 6:5
