10 Reasons Why We Should Pray for the Philippines

10 Reasons Why We Should Pray for the Philippines

Due to the particular mood in my country, I would like to interrupt my series of posts on my social-climbing escapades, for fear that I might be linked also to any congressman, senator, blood-sucking politician, and that goddamn pork barrel. ******  this!

There are ten reasons why the Filipino people must ask God for mercy and salvation.
1.  We used our religions to tear apart a land that never belonged to any religious institution or denomination. The Philippines- its mountains and valleys, rivers and springs, islands and volcanoes, the animals that roam the sky and crawls on earth, its secrets underneath its hills and inside its caves- belongs to the Almighty who created heaven and earth. Why is it being shattered and claimed by warlords and mere human beings of flesh and blood?

  1.  We abdicated form our sovereign right to rule and denied the mandate given to us by the laws of heaven and earth to become good stewards of this blessed nation. We conceded our right and gave away the sceptre of power to certain undeserving families.
  2. The people ask their daily bread from TV networks, vices, and people like this guy. 
  3. We have created messiahs out of Manny Pacquiao, TV personalities, and local parasitic warlords and political icons. While God dictated His laws and justice from his High Mountain, we are all prostrate on the ground before filthy golden crocodiles, worshipping clans and mere human icons. 
  4. We think that the poor are natural-born criminals who don’t deserve help and compassion, but we show Christian mercy and consideration for the greed of the powerful, the filthy rich, and the undeservingly famous. In fact, many of us are groupies or bff’s of those hedonistic despots. O ano? Don’t just stigmatize the informal settlers! Mag tweet ka din sa mga ka-uri mong mayayaman na nakinabang sa mga kababuyan! Tweet pa! Nyeta!

  5. We chose to forget these- Martial Law, junking FOI Bill, the CON-ASS and HR 1109, NBN-ZTE Deal, Marcos Family, 1949 elections, 2004 elections, Joc-Joc and fertilizer scam, Euro generals, at marami pa akong nakalimutan.

  6. We sanctified these. 
  7. We live up to the expectations of shrewd politicians, that we are gullible and mindless bleating herd of sheep, instead of training ourselves to become a thinking class, the Sovereign People of the Republic.

  8. The Filipino youth are sick with the despicable social amnesia and deliberate stupidity. It’s already a pandemic, and we’re not even trying to cure them. 
  9.  We will lose our attention and concern about the pork barrel scam. We will try to be good Christians by forgiving these scums of the earth. And this too shall pass. We will forget that the Million March happened. Napoles will be pardoned. Her children will become venerated senators.

Forgive me Lord for what I said in number 10. But what I said is true. Only a miracle and divine intervention will save the Filipino people from itself.

  1. We really need divine intervention... “A nation without God's guidance is a nation without order. Happy are those who keep God's law!” Proverbs 29:18

    10 things! Sapol na sapol ang problema ng bayan! Pero sa sampu, yong pang lima ang ramdam na ramdam yong intensity! yong tipong mapapatayo ka sabay bagsak ng kamay sa lamesa!

    Let's pray for our Nation!

    1. Keri mo yang mga english na yan! hehehe! Religion is not a problem. It's the people and how they apply their faith in everyday life, or if they even apply it at all.

  5. We as Filipinos, never learn from our mistakes. We even repeat them, in different situations and personas. It is like a big circle without an end. A friend asked me once why we still elect those we knew as corrupt and undeserving. I was dumbfounded. It must be because we choose the lesser evil?

    1. we don't choose the lesser evil. There are no other options. But F. SIonil José once said that only a revolution would change everything.

    1. We survived 3 centuries of Spanish rule, the japanese occupation, the american colonization, Martial Law, Estrada and Gloria. Natatapos din naman ang mga problemang yan. At mga baboy lang din yang problema natin sa mga controversy ng pork barrel. Tama ka din Kulapitot, kaya natin ito. Tiwala lang sa sarili at sa kinabukasan.

  8. Ayaw ko sanang mag agree,kaya lang totoo naman talaga ang mga sinabi mo. Isnt it so sad that we have experienced a lot, yet we seemed to not learn anything from it all. Nakakaawa lang talaga no?

    1. You really don't have to agree. This post aims to show what's happening to trigger rage and anger and push the people to do the right choices. First, by voting for new faces, people with track record, REAL intelligence, AND NOT A DYNAST.

  9. I must say WE SHOULD LOVE EACH OTHER AND OUR COUNTRY yun lang. I thank you bow.

  10. So much wisdom and truth about this post. Very awakening. Yes, prayer is the best thing we can do, but it must be the right prayer with the right heart. May God help everyone.
    I believe that we all need to seek wisfom from God , not man.
    Keep writing Mr Tripster. You have the wisdom and the knowledge. Thumbs up ako. I hope na marami pa makabasa neto para mabuksan mga isipan ng tao.
    God bless you more.

    1. Iilan lang naman kasi ang nagsasabi sa atin na may masamang ginagawa ang mga pulitikong ito. Pero sa mata ng mga nakikinabang, sa mga naaabutan ng pera, at sa mga nagpapabola pa rin tuwing election season, eh mga anak ng Diyos ang mga hinayupak na ito. Kaya hindi madaling malutas ang mga problema natin sa mga gagong ito.

  12. Waaah, sana naman hindi mabaon sa limot yung issue kay Napoles at sa Pork Barrel scam. Magiging paulit-ulit na lng ang ganitong mga issue hangga't hindi nasosolusyunan at hindi nananagot ang mga may sala.

    /sigh... sana bumuka ang lupa at lamunin si Napoles kabilang na ang mga kasabwat niya!

    1. SIno ba sa atin ang nakakaalala pa ng issue ng Pork Barrel noong 1990's? Kung kakaunti lang, malamang yang si Napoles, malilimutan na rin.

  17. Prayers yes nothing could be better.

    As for No. 9:
    "The Filipino youth are sick with the despicable social amnesia and deliberate stupidity. It’s already a pandemic, and we’re not even trying to cure them."

    - I pray harder for parents not to let this happen. I'm not the best Mom or person but aside from really trying hard to be a good Filipino citizen I am applying "prevention" to my kids not cure. So help me God!

    1. I'm a youth leader too. It really breaks my heart to see the youth like that- deliberately ignorant. Madami pa silang alam sa showbiz at kung ano mismo ang kulay ng singit ng mga artista. Pero tanungin mo kung ano nangyayari sa bansa, wala. Bokya!
