“God of all grace, Trinity of love, source and protector of all life, bestow upon us Thy gracious mercy. In times of uncertainty and distress, may Thy Spirit rise to banish all our worries and fears. May Thy Holiness touch the weak, the frightened, and the ill.

Bigyan mo po ng sapat na kalusugan ang aming kasamang Sen. Lito Lapid at lahat ng mga kawani ng Senado na mayroon ding karamdaman upang maigupo nila ang Covid-19 virus sa lalong madaling panahon.

Aming dasal ng pasasalamat din na ligtas sa anumang kapansanan ang nag-iisa at nananatiling People’s Champ, Sen. Manny Pacquiao.

Isang natatanging dasal para sa kaligtasan at kalusugan ng Pangulo ng Senado, Vicente Sotto III, na nagdiriwang ng kanyang kaarawan sa araw na ito.

May the strength of Thy hand fill our hearts with eternal love, as we continue to become vessels of Thy will and glory. This we ask in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. Amen.”
