ORDER
What does it take
to
sit at one tableSharing the harvest of a community at peace?
At

p.m., the Senate President, Hon.

it
too
much to expect our country
to
unite?When a vote in this hallHow often do the
23
members agree?

PRAYER
Sen, Juan Ponce Enrile led the prayer, to wit:
Let’s
bow
our heads
to
honor the
presence
of
the Lord:
Father Almighty, when Yon created manIn Your own image and likeness,
A
world perfect in
its
conception?A world where people ate at one tableSharing the harvest of a communitydid You imagineat peace?How long did it take You to decideWith planets and moons?And when You let the first precipitationDrop on the barren soil,That the Sun was created
to
complete
to
fill
the voidwhat genius in designthe cycle of the seasons.There is day and there is night,Man and woman side by side,the cold is tamed by warmth.harmony and balance abound.But Father Almighty,dangerously into destruction.
Men
have engaged in war too longNature itself is in revolt.The earth is literally shakingIn
its
foundations desperately trying
to
bring Man
to
its senses.When giant waves roll from seas,are those not the frustrated tearsof Mother NatureYour world is now tippedBegging belligerent children
to
behave?Father Almighty,as we reflect on events in the world,And as we ponder on our duties as legislators,Help
us
to be examples
to
our counttymenThat, in spite of
OUT
differences,In unity and peace.Make
us
realize that survival onour country can move forwardEarth depends on the diversity of life.Bestow Your wisdom upon
us
so thatwe are able to discernThat the voice of dissent is not alwaysa dangerous challenge
To
those who have temporal powerhut
a
necessw mechanism for balance.And give
us
the grace
to
live harmoniouslywith each other
So
that each voice is heard.For everything has a place in Your Earth.Amen.
