It's my dad's birthday and as of this day, he hasn't receive yet my birthday gift which I send first week of August. I thought of the recent storm in the Philippines as the culprit for the delay. Anyway, I posted a birthday prayer for my dad in my facebook account because from time to time, he looks at my mom's facebook account. To my wonderful dad (tatay in our native language), I wish you good health and more years to come. Here's my prayer for you on your special day.
for today is his birthday.
Dear Lord, please protect and guide tatay as he
continues along the path you’ve chosen for him.
Give him the courage to follow in your light, and feel
your love wherever he goes.
Make him strong and give him the strength to make
good decisions in the coming year. Keep him free from
illness and sadness, for he is a truly good person who
deserves happiness and success in all aspects of life.
We know that life is like a book. With each new
chapter, we learn and grow towards what you would
have us be. Bless my dearest tatay now on this day, and in the future.
In your name we pray, Amen.
