To most Filipinos, prayer is one of the best tools to express love and care for another being. Through prayers, we get to convey our inner thoughts, feelings, and emotions. And in whatever situation there is, we always find joy, strength, and hope through the profession of our faith.
This is also the reason why many Filipinos turn to prayers when it comes to seeking blessings for families and loved ones. We pray especially for our grandparents, whom we dearly look up to in terms of their wisdom, experience, and selflessness for family. By praying for them, we consciously convey our love and seek God’s blessing for their protection and guidance over their remaining time with us.
