Prayer For Peace - Poem by MELVIN BANGGOLLAY

Heavenly Father, we ardently pray
For your presence in this special day
To protect and guide us heavenly
As we have our third graduation day.

We know that without you today
And in every moment that we sail away
Amidst the ocean of life’s long journey
We could never triumph successfully.

But with your love, grace and mercy
We know that we could make it someday;
Bless us then with strength to sail away
And a heart that treasures humility.

Grant us peace and tranquility
Specially in our dear locality
So that we could behold in our way
Development in spite of our diversity.

Forgive us also of our shortcomings
Against our fellowmen and your will
And in everything we failed to see
and done for your kingdom and glory.

Above all, we thank thee fervently
For all your blessings and mercy
For giving us the chance and opportunity
To dwell in your kingdom someday.

All these we ask with humility
Through Jesus Christ, our only Lord and Savior.
