Selfless, loving, caring, dedicated, committed and many more – they gave up so many things in life for us to become who we are right now.
My wife and I are eternally grateful to our loving fathers. We are nothing without both of you.
To Papa/Engr. Franco and Papa Ramon, thank you for all the support, prayers, understanding and for accompanying us in our journey. Thank you for all the shared blessings, time and treasures.
We honor you both with our prayers.
“God, give Papa/Engr. Franco and Papa Ramon,
Your strength to steer him,
Your power to uphold him,
Your wisdom to guide him,
Your eye for his vision,
Your ear for his hearing,
Your word for his speech,
Your hand to protect him,
Your pathway before him,
Your shield for his shelter,
Your angels to guard him
from ambush of devils,
from vice’s allurements,
from traps of the flesh,
from all who wish ill,
whether distant or close,
alone or in hosts.
Christ be beside him,
Christ before him,
Christ behind him,
Christ within him,
Christ beneath him,
Christ above him.
Christ on his right hand,
Christ on his left,
Christ where he lies,
Christ where he sits,
Christ where he rises.
Christ in the hearts of all who think of him,
Christ in the mouths of all who speak to him,
Christ in every eye that sees him,
Christ in every ear that hears him.
Father, thank you for Papa/Engr. Franco and Papa Ramon.
Please continue and complete your work in him,
granting that he may walk with you like Enoch,
believe you like Abraham,
obey you like Isaac,
wrestle with you like Jacob,
know your hand on his life like Joseph,
speak face-to-face with you like Moses,
win victories for you like Gideon,
speak boldly for you like Elijah,
worship you like David,
see you high and lifted up like Isaiah,
and carry Jesus’ cross like Simon of Cyrene.”
