Why I am staying in the Philippines (6): More than one little candle

And I am sure of this, that he who began a good work in you will bring it to completion at the day of Jesus Christ. - Philippians 1:6


A candlelight, prayer rally was held earlier today (May 1st) at the Meditation Garden of the Quezon Memorial Circle. Led by an interfaith group of supporters, the event served as a venue to pray for honest, peaceful and credible elections, and for the victory of the principles and platform of Ang Kapatiran party and its senatorial candidates Zosimo Paredes, Martin D. Bautista, and Adrian O. Sison as well as its local candidates in the May 14 elections.

One of the charismatic Christian groups who led the crowd into singing songs of praise, worship, and thanksgiving.




Ang Kapatiran supporters, standing, and ready to be counted.




The candidates' first foray into the event's stage.


Dr Bautista sharing the light from his candle with the crowd.



Ang Kapatiran senatorial candidates Atty Sison, Atty Paredes, and Dr Bautista renewing their covenant of service to God and country.


True to the night's final song- the three candidates lead the crowd in singing Onward Christian Soldier.

No clenched fists...
no political speeches...
no disturbance of peace & order-
Just hands held high, palms up...
in deep prayer and expression of praise and thanksgiving...
storming heaven to bring peace and renewal to our land.


When we stop hoping, we cease to be Christians.
