Prayers For Peace: Holy Saturday

March 30, 2024

Over this Easter Weekend, the International Interfaith Network of ICHRP would like to present four Prayers for Peace, which we will publish daily over the weekend. These prayers were submitted by members of the Interfaith Network. They help us reflect on our role as people of faith in the struggle for justice, peace, and human rights in the Philippines.

Today’s prayer was written by Deaconess Joyous Prim of the United Methodist Church.

Holy Lord, today on this Holy Saturday we are reminded that you are no stranger to death and darkness. That in this day the world waited mourning Jesus death, We to remember communities in the Philippines who too are no stranger to death, darkness and mourning of killings, bombings and human rights violations. As we await the victory of your resurection Lord, As we face reports of the stories, help us to not close our ears but journey through the reality and discomfort at the news, that we may open with communities and hear their cries for just and lasting Peace. May our collective efforts pave the way for a future where peace and justice becomes a reality across the Philippines.
