Baka makuha sa dasal: CBCP issues prayer for barangay and SK polls
The Catholic Bishops’ Conference of the Philippines (CBCP) has released a prayer to be recited in every mass for the barangay and Sangguniang Kabataan elections.
The prayer was released on the eve of the start of the campaign period.
The Catholic bishops pray for voters to choose candidates “who will work for truth, justice, and the upliftment of human dignity”.
The prayer likewise sought Divine Providence for the “gift of discernment, so that we may wisely exercise the gift of suffrage.”
The prayer will be recited in all parishes starting May 6 until the eve of the elections, which is set on May 14.
It is suggested that it be said after the Post Communion Prayer of the Mass in all the masses and is available in English, Tagalog and Cebuano translations.
