THE POWER OF PRAYER- FRIDAY-MY TOWN SHOOT OUT

First off, let me share to you the history of my own country. It is related to this weeks theme "POWER". The People Power Revolution (also known as the EDSA Revolution and the Philippine Revolution of 1986) was a series of nonviolent and prayerful mass street demonstrations in the Philippines that occurred in 1986. It was the inspiration for subsequent non-violent demonstrations around the world including those that ended communist rule in Eastern Europe.


I would like to thank the Town Blogger Team for including me on the list of the members although I was not so active in the past few weeks. I always excited to check and see beautiful photos every Friday though. And what I most like is the warm welcome I received to be a part of the FRIDAY- MY TOWN SHOOT OUT.

This week's theme is "POWER" assigned by J9 of California. There's a lot of powers i thought of. I am a fan of Superman and Spiderman :-) But Friday Shoot Out is all about the things found in MY TOWN. So here I share the Power of Prayer.

BALAAN BUKID (Holy Mountain)

I doubt I had devoted more than 30 minutes to prayer at any session in my life. What I always pray is good health for everybody especially my family so that they can continue the good deeds.


My friend Imee who was praying silently.


I can assure there's power of prayer. I experienced it twice. We cannot access powerful prayer by using "magic formulas. Our prayers being answered is not based on the eloquence of our prayers. It is the prayer of a righteous man is powerful & effective.


If you have some work to do,
Start this very hour.
You supply the willingness
God supplies the power

Redlan, I enjoyed your history lesson on the People Power Revolutions. It's so nice to learn new things from other cultures. I'm glad you did your theme on the power of prayer. It's definitely the highest form of power their is.

Also, I wanted to thank you for using one of my photos in your town reflections post. I am appreciative that you liked it enough to share with others. So, thank you.

Have a wonderful day, my friend.

Excellent post, the power of prayer is truly amazing.

Excellent post and photos. We certainly appreciate your contribution to the FSO.

The book and the background sound interesting. Your commentary is sending me to Amazon to look for it. If not there, I will check Ebay or used book sellers.

Thanks. Always something to be learned as we blog.

Prayer is the most POWERFUL tool one can have without cost. It allows us a relationship like no other and growth of our inner selves as we become one with the Holy Spirit. Wonderful post!! Powerful, indeed.

Nothing is like the power of prayer. I have seen it in action so many times. Wonderful post.

I love hearing about the revolution, as I was not paying close enough attention in '86! I love the shots on Holy Mountain as well. There are not very many places like this in the US, though I've seen them all over other countries.

You were right to lead off with Corazon Aquino, she was a very strong person and leader for you. It's an amazing story of people power overthrowing a dictator like Marcos. I've always admired you filipinos since that time.
