MANILA - An upset Anne Curtis couldn't hold back her tears as she, along with her "It's Showtime" co-hosts, offered a prayer for Vhong Navarro on Saturday.
The noontime program opened with a moment of silence, a day after news surfaced that Navarro has been hospitalized following an attack by a group of men inside a condominium unit in Taguig last Wednesday.
"Lord God, as we bow our heads with heavy hearts, We ask Lord that you play your healing hand upon our brother, Vhong," Curtis said, sobbing. "Bigyan niyo po siya ng lakas. Paramdam niyo po sa kanya yung pagmamahal niyo, na malaman niya na nandiyan ka lang Lord para sa kanya. You will help him get through this. We pray Lord God for his speedy recovery. He will stand tall and he will be saved."
"We ask you give him comfort, his family comfort. You give everyone that he loves comfort during this time of trial. Lord we lift him up to you that he will be healthy again, he will get through this. Just be with him during this time of tiral. May he know that not only are his friends, his family, his followers, may he know that we are not the only ones there for him."
"Vhong, we love you and we're here for you," she said.
Curtis, along with co-hosts Teddy Corpuz, Jhong Hilario, and Vice Ganda, earlier took to the micro-blogging site Twitter on Saturday to voice out their support for Navarro.
As of writing, the hashtag "#PrayForVhongNavarro" was still the number one local trend as fans and friends continued to express their support for the actor.
"Maraming, maraming salamat po sa lahat ng mga Kapamilya na nakasama namin sa pagdadasal kagabi," VIce Ganda said. "Sa mga nagparamdam ng kanilang pagmamahal kay Vhong."
While the actor is now recovering from his injuries, he may still undergo surgery in the coming days, according to his manager Chito Rono.
