Today (a national holiday in the Philippines), the world will witness the first massive protest against the Aquino administration. The Million People March (to be held at the Rizal Park in Manila) calls for the abolition of the Priority Development Assistance Fund. Popularly called “Pork Barrel,” the PDAF has become a cesspool for corrupt politicians and their “conduits” in various government agencies and bogus non-government organizations (NGOs).
- For peace during the Million People March
- For “cleansing” in Philippine government
- That the Lord would preserve peace in the nation for the work of the gospel
First of all, then, I urge that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgivings be made for all people, for kings and all who are in high positions, that we may lead a peaceful and quiet life, godly and dignified in every way. (1 Timothy 2:1-2)
