Prayer for Shalom Club Philippines

Prayer for the Ambassadors for Peace

Shalom Club Philippines

December 5, 2015


  • Share a lunch and gifts this Christmas 2015
  • Help the environment (Tulong sa Kalikasan)
  • Provide health aid (Tulong sa kalusugan)
Father Almighty, source of light, of life and everything in this world, we beg you to be with us, to be our “unseen Guest.” Light our way; touch our heart as we touch the hearts of others.  Bless us with joy and enthusiasm, with zeal and obedience, with understanding and compassion as we pledge to strengthen  Shalom, our  organization, even at the midst of trials and tribulations.  Soften the heart of arrogance and indifference amongst us, including those in our host country Israel, that is embroiled in continuing conflict and isolation.   

Father Almighty, teach us to become true agents of change. 
- Make us unifying elements that we may live peacefully in one community;
- Make us catalysts of change, and an anchor of undefined destiny as well;
- Make us conveyors of knowledge, skill and values rolled into a holistic well-being;
- Make us healers by bringing enlightenment to human misery;
- Make us agents of rational thoughts and decisions;
- Make us sentries that we may fend off evil intentions that undermine the true values of life;
- Make us custodians of tradition amid modernism;
- Make us guardians in the way of the Parable of the Sower, and the Prodigal Son;
- Make us the Good Samaritan, as well. 

You have chosen us ambassadors for peace and emissaries of goodwill under one banner, Shalom Club Philippines
- to reach out for one another,
- to listen,
- to care,
- to comfort,
- to encourage one another when we fail,
- to pray for one another when we falter, in order 
- to be strong as an organization. 

- to share the joy of teaching; and
Bless Father Almighty all those who have sacrificed their time, effort and comfort, all for the sake of Shalom, particularly Miss Zeny Ubaldo, founder, and chairman, our guardian who will always support us in our renewed dedication.

With you, Father Almighty, we can do many things; without you, we can do nothing. We ask You these through your Son Jesus Christ, who reigns forever and ever. Amen~
