‘God will renew your strength” Isiah 40:31
Days after Typhoon Yolanda struck the country, Mano Amiga Academy community organized a relief effort to help the victims of the super typhoon. Despite of their limited resources, scholars and their parents of Mano Amiga Academy extended their sympathy by donating their hard-earned money, their relief items such as used clothes, books and food packs and endless prayers for their kababayans.
The spirit of compassion, love, and camaraderie brought everyone together. Everyone worked hand in hand and together prayed that their simple help would send love and peace to the victims.
As simple prayer was prepared by the principal and teachers. Together with the scholars, they pray:
Loving Father, you are our shelter and our hope. We come to you with hearts full of trust in your love and mercy.
We pray for the victims of tropical storm Yolanda. May those who have lost homes and properties find shelter, enough food and clean water.
Comfort those who are traumatized and those who are grieving for the loss of their families, neighbors and friends. Bless those who are sick and those who are injured that their health may be restored and their wounds cured.
May you lead all who are stranded or lost back to those who love them. Guide the hands of the rescuers, the doctors and nurses and other volunteers and give them strength as they serve others with joy.
May this calamity bring people closer together, to help each other and to care for the environment. Give us the faith, hope and love to carry on. This we ask through Jesus Christ, Our Lord.
