(February 13, 2012) Impeachment Trial: My Ecumenical Prayer

Almighty father, our ultimate law giver and the source of all power and authority, this impeachment court comes before you and our people today to fulfill our duty to render justice in these proceedings.

Gabayan niyo po kami o Diyos na makapangyarihan. Bigyan ninyo po kami ng sapat na dunong, lakas at tapang na tiyakin na sa paglilitis na ito mangingibabaw ang hustisya at katarungan para sa lahat.

We seek your infinite wisdom, your strength and your courage to pursue accountability and justice for all. We pray that your guiding hand leads us to the path of the righteous, the just and the truth.

Oh Lord as the nation wades through unfamiliar constitutional waters, we seek clarity of mind and a courageous heart to do what must be done to uphold the national interest. Where there is confusion we pray for enlightenment, where there is need for discernment we pray for wisdom, where there is overzealousness we pray for restraint. Where there is dissension we pray for unity for the good of our nation. Bigyan niyo po kami ng sapat na kakayahan na mabigyan ng linaw sa harap ng kalituhan, magkaroon ng pagkakaisa sa harap ng bangayan, mabigyan ng mapanuring pagiisip sa harap ng samut-saring mga posisyon at argumento upang masagot ang tanong kung nagkasala ba o hindi ang nasasakdal.

As public servants we pray too that as we pursue justice and accountability, we do so without neglecting the need to create jobs for our people, provide food for our hungry and to provide the atmosphere for the creation of wealth for our nation and our people.This we ask in the name of Jesus. Amen
