Prayer for Rain

O God, in Whom we live and move, and have our being, grant us rain, in due abundance, that, being sufficiently helped with temporal, we may the more confidently seek after eternal gifts. Through Christ, our Lord. Amen.

Prayer Source: Novena in Honor of St. Isidore: Patron of Farmers by National Catholic Rural Life Conference, National Catholic Rural Life Conference

 

The Oratio Imperata ad Petendam Pluviam is to be prayed after Communion before the Post Communion Prayer:

God our loving Father, creator of our earth and of the universe, and all the wondrous elements of nature that sustain your living creatures, we humbly ask you to send us the rain that our country needs so badly at this time, to irrigate our fields, to stave off a power shortage, to provide water for our bodily health, and to refresh our parched lands. At your command the wind and the seas obey, raise your hand Almighty God to send us so that crisis may be averted.

Merciful and generous God, open our eyes to the richness and beauty of your creation and instill in us a deep love for this earth and all that is in and around it. Teach us to be wise stewards of your creation so that we may always use them responsibly and protect them from abuse and exploitation. At this time of crisis, dear Lord, move us to share more and to love more.

Loving God, Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, you entrusted the Filipino people to the special care of Mary our Mother, listen to the prayers that we bring up to her, our Blessed Mother, to intercede for us, for the protection of our land and our people, whom she loves.

 

Grant this through our Lord Jesus Christ who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, One God forever and ever. Amen.

Our Lady of Guadalupe, pray for us.

Saint Rose of Lima, pray for us.

Saint Lorenzo Ruiz, pray for us.

Let us all pray together for God to bless our country and the world with good rain.

Ciao! :)

Learn to Laugh

a prayer, Affirmations No Comments »

After 4 days of vacation, I will be reporting to work again tomorrow. I know I need to catch up with my sales. While my colleagues are already around $300 sales as of June 4, mine was only $60! :( Well, I know that I need to work harder and should be more convincing when offering our support in the next few days to catch up. When I checked the email sent my team leader, I felt a little panic. But then, I need to keep my composure. My 4-day rest from work is enough to keep me focus and concentrate with my work again. I pray that God will help me not to get disoriented again. I feel nervous because there are a lot of pressure when I report for work tomorrow. But then, I know that I need to face the challenge and should not be afraid. I know that I have God by my side to help me.

I remember one of our sales trainers told us that we don’t smile while on call. That we’re so serious and robot-like. I guess this little prayer here will somehow change that scenario and hopefully everyone will be able to realize that amidst all life’s challenges, God loves us, that there is no reason for us not to smile! :)

 Learn to Laugh

God grant that I may see the joke of things
The little things that bother now and then
God grant my sense of humor may be strong
To weep a bit and yet to smile again

God grant there be chuckle in each tear
To every trial God grant a funny half
And when I’m to be judged. Perhaps He’ll say,
“Are you the soul who always tried to laugh?”

And then I nod and answer, “Yes, I am.
I tried to slay my troubles with grin.”
Perhaps He’ll smile and say, “That was a task!
So here’s the Gate of Heaven: enter in!”

Smile! God loves you!

Smile, God Loves You! Pictures, Images and Photos

Ciao! :)

A Thanksgiving

It’s around 11:45 PM of July 18, 2008. The day is about to end. I’m on our bed and just about to sleep.

The dreadful prediction about today’s earthquake didn’t come to reality. Praise God! PhiVolcS(Philippine Volcanology and Seismology) said that even if they have the equipment and knowledge about earthquake, no one can really predict when an earthquake will strike.

Well, I believe that all our prayers paid it off. Let’s continue to pray for our safety, for our country and the world.

We should always be on guard and prepared.

Thank you Lord and bless us always! Amen.
