President Benigno Aquino 3rd will lead the nation in prayer for a “more progressive future,” a Malacañang official said.
Presidential Communications Secretary Hermnio Coloma Jr. called on the public to join the “National Day of Prayer and Solidarity”, which will be held on January 20 in Malacañang.
“The National Day of Prayer and Solidarity with the theme ‘One Nation in Prayer’ is going to be held in accordance with the Filipino people’s recognition of the guidance of Divine Providence in our forward movement towards a more progressive future,” Coloma said.
Citing the President’s message in the New Year Vin D’Honneur, Coloma noted the country’s resilience despite the many challenges it faced.
“Some of you have marveled at the resilience of our nation, a people whose faith, though challenged, remained constant and only deepened. Our unbreakable spirit and ability to recover find root in our firm belief in a benevolent God who has the perfect plan for all of us,” he said
“These tragedies tell us that, despite all our efforts, we are indeed powerless without God,” Coloma added.
