Prayer for the May 9 Elections

What About Philippine Politics

(Adapted from Psalm 43 by Yna Reyes)

Why so downcast, O my soul?
Why so disturbed within me?
Put your hope in God.

Hear me, O God,
and plead my cause against an ungodly nation;
rescue the rule of this land
from deceitful and wicked men and women.
You are God our stronghold.
Why must our people go about suffering,
oppressed by the injustices of a
corrupt political system?
Send forth your light and your truth,
let them guide us on May 9 election day;
let them bring this nation to your righteous reign,
to the center of your perfect will.
Then we, your children, will go to the altar of God,
To God, our joy and our delight.
We will praise you with joyful singing,
O God, our God.

Why are you downcast, O my soul?
Why so disturbed within me?
Put your hope in God,
for I will yet praise Him,
my Savior and my God.
