Manila and its nearby provinces was left in shambles after Typhoon Ondoy exited the country. The amount of rainfall surpassed Typhoon Katrina which hit New Orleans in 2005. In the last 24 hours, Ondoy dumped 455 millimeters of rain in Quezon City along compared to 250 millimeters brought by Typhoon Katrina!
Sharing with you this prayer for those still in the midst of this calamity:
God of mercy,you know the secrets of all human hearts,for you
know who is just and you forgive the repentant sinner.Hear my prayer in the
midst of destruction;give me patience and hope,so that under your protection and
with you as my guide,I may one day be reunited with my family and friendsin
peace, tranquility, and love.Grant this through Christ our Lord. Amen.
