The prayer goes as follow: “Almighty Father, you are the God of water, earth and sky. By your great power and mighty strength, you created the universe. The earth is filled with your glory!
With humble hearts, we approach your throne. We ask that you restore the calmness of Taal Volcano. We know nothing is impossible to you and you are always in control. May the boiling lava subside and molten rocks cool down.
Instill your compassionate presence in us so we may calm our fears. You have always provided everything we need.
O, Lord continue to keep us all safe under your divine protection. In Jesus name, we pray. Amen.”
