I propose this prayer for our nation and the mankind to invoke God's mercy. I hope all faithful in our diocese and our nation would use this prayer as the collective and individual endeavors along with our individual sacrifices: THE PRAYER FOR THE PANDEMIC IN THE WORLD. Heavenly Father, Lord Jesus Christ, we give you thanks for your grace, our existence and sustenance. We beseech you, Father, to forgive us our sins and the sins of the world. We are aware of death being the wages of sins; however, we ask for your mMercy on mankind, who continuously disregard your warnings. We know that we deserve this destructive outcome as a consequence of our disobedience. Our relentless pursuit of temporal things while neglecting spiritual life is detestable. Heavenly Father, by the Holy Spirit, we beseech you to grant us spiritual strength to repent from our sins and accept the current challenges for the benefit of our souls and our salvation. Long ago, you forgave and saved the grievously sinful people in Nineveh city after their atonement and now with our repentance we beg your mercy saving the mankind from this corona pandemic. We ask this in Jesus' name. Amen.

In the name of Jesus the Annointed of the universe itself, pray for my objectives in my job and my missionary. I am darkened in a sense by the mysteries of information that can't reach yet, or can't even afford for executing some matters.. I don't know if I should go to college again. Or maybe ask God for his hand on bringing me teachers to know all there is. So I can strike off at the vertex of my creativity and wisdom to make things godly for him. May I never be tempted by evil. May I never misuse my gifts. May I do all that is right to remediate the Earth in God's way through my objectives daily. I want it to be useful to the end of time for all to see Jesus alone.

For all my family members and friends and anyone who knows or doesn't know me — Genesis 50:20 “But as for you, ye thought evil against me; but God meant it unto good, to bring to pass, as it is this day, to save much people alive.”
