CITY OF MALOLOS- Various religious groups in Bulacan became united yesterday in “A Day of Prayer” for the province’s welfare at the mini-forest in the historic capital city.

With the theme “Sama-samang Panalangin para sa Lalawigan ng Bulacan”, Gov. Wilhelmino M. Sy-Alvarado encourages the Bulakenyos to spend a minute of prayer a day every 12 noon.

“Yung mga nangyayaring sakuna sa lalawigan, mga kriminalidad, ang sagot po dito ay ang ating mga dasal. A prayer of a righteous man is powerful and effective. Kaya sa pamamagitan nitong isang minutong dasal araw-araw, unti-unti but sustained, sisimulan natin sa maliit at ating palalawakin, walang hindi magagawa ang taus-pusong pagdarasal,” Alvarado said.

The governor also clarified that this sacred thing must not be linked with politics.

Meanwhile, Rev. Benny Abante, Senior Pastor of the Metropolitan Bible Baptist Church and Ministries described the characteristics of a righteous nation.

“Ang matuwid na bayan ay tumatawag sa Diyos, nakikinig sa kanyang salita. Napakagandang makita na ang hawak ng ating mga lider ay Bibliya at hindi pera. Kapag nangyari ‘to, mawawala ang kurapsyon,” said Abante.

He added that more than 30 percent of the government revenues go to corruption, which is why a righteous nation must refrain from it.

Among the participants were leaders from different religious denominations.

Before the program ends, representatives from the various religious groups sang the theme song of Bulacan Day of Prayer entitled Kay Ganda ng Bayan Ko and Lord, Heal our Land wherein the shared Bible verses were all about.

On the other hand, Alvarado also announced in his speech that the PNoy or productivity enhancement incentive will be given to employees of the Provincial Government of Bulacan before the month of January ends. ###
