Supertyphoon Pepeng

As of this post, the Philippines is bracing for another typhoon to hit the Northern part of Luzon. Typhoon Pepeng is classified as a supertyphoon and is said to be even stronger then the recent Typhoon Ondoy that has already caused so much loss and destruction.

Even if I am hundreds of miles away, the Philippines will always be my home. Let us join all the Filipinos at home and abroad in prayer for Supertyphoon Pepeng to be diverted or to weaken before hitting the Philippines.

Oratio Imperata for Deliverance From Calamities
Almighty Father, we raise our hearts to You in gratitude for the wonders of creation of which we are part, for Your providence in sustaining us in our needs, and for Your wisdom that guides the course of the universe.
We acknowledge our sins against You and the rest of creation.
We have not been good stewards of Nature.
We have confused Your command to subdue the earth.
The environment is made to suffer our wrongdoing, and now we reap the harvest of our abuse and indifference.
Global warming is upon us. Typhoons, floods, volcanic eruption, and other natural calamities occur in increasing number and intensity.
We turn to You, our loving Father, and beg forgiveness for our sins.
We ask that we, our loved ones and our hard earned possessions be spared from the threat of calamities, natural and man-made.
We beseech You to inspire us all to grow into responsible stewards of Your creation, and generous neighbors to those in need.

I truly believe in the power of prayer and I know that God will hear us if we all pray together.

Indeed God always hears us and gives us what is good and right for us. We have been spared from the wrath of typhoon Pepeng. We rejoice and are grateful but the work of helping the victims of typhoon Ondoy goes on.
