Loboc Children's Choir
MANILA -- People were moved by the Loboc Children's Choir's "The Prayer" for the Visayas earthquake tragedy.
In light of recent events, the award-winning Loboc Children's Choir touched the hearts of people all over the world as their rendition of "The Prayer", their message of hope, was broadcast on TV Patrol last week, and also posted online.
Last Friday, TV Patrol asked its viewers, "Inawitan ng Loboc Children’s Choir ang mga kababayang nasalanta ng #earthquakePH. Ikaw, anong mensahe mo para sa mga naapektuhan?"
Netizens said that there is always hope for a better future, and that it is attainable with God's help.
According to Facebook user Cel Dela Cruz, it is important to have faith, especially when one has to deal with unfortunate events.
"Habang may buhay may pag-asa. Wag tayo mawawalan ng pag-asa sa mga pagsubok sa buhay. Humingi tau ng tulong sa Diyos at pakikinggan niya tayo," she said.
Elizabeth Singoc meanwhile said that people should stay strong in order to get through tough times.
"Tibayan ang loob, lahat tayo dadaan sa matinding pagsubok sa buhay hindi tayo mawawalan ng pagasa. Lagi natin tatandaan hindi tayo pababayaan ng Diyos," she said.
Said Maria Paz Koh, prayer helps people get through hard times. "Sana malagpasan ninyo ang napakabigat na pagsubok na dumating sa buhay ninyo. Just keep on praying and don't lose hope. God bless you all.”
According to Kit Cabahug Algarme, God will help his people rise again. She said, "The love of God is bigger than this problem. He already sent His son to die for us, what else couldn't He do for us? Stay safe and be blessed!"
Floramie Acero shared the same sentiment with Maria Paz Koh and Kit Cabanhug Algarme. She said that people should pray and never lose hope.
"Huwag kaung mawlan ng pagasa. May mensahe ang Panginoon sa bawat isa. Khit anong mangyari Siya ay laging nagmamhal sa atin."
She also believes that Filipinos should ask for forgiveness for their sins, to avoid future hardships: "Kung ano man ang mga kasalan, humingi na ng kapatawaran sa Panginoon. Siya ay naghihintay sa inyo. Pray and never lose hope."
On Twitter, netizens were all for having faith amidst everything that has been happening.
According to twitter user John Recepcion (@jOhnrecepcion18), “Dont lose hope. When the sun goes down, the stars come out. Just pray and believe in HIM!”
