Ilulunsad ng Office of the Presidential Adviser for Religious Affairs (OPARA) ang “The Whole Nation PRAY AS ONE! Heal as One!” itong Mayo 30 para ipagdasal ang bansa sa patuloy na pananalasa ng COVID-19.
Hinirang na chairperson si ARTA Director General Jeremiah Belgica para sa virtual interfaith prayer event. Co-chair ng ARTA czar sina DOTr Secretary Arthur Tugade at DOJ Secretary Menardo Guevarra.
“We are one with the President in calling for this sacred event. Kami pong mga opisyal ng ARTA ay may weekly prayer for the nation at 6am and have seen God’s hand at work sa aming mga kanya-kanyang buhay at trabaho. I also know that if we will come as a nation and with our leaders leading their families to call unto God, we know that He will hear us and heal our land,” pahayag ng Director General na isa ring pastor.
Hinikayat din ni Presidential Adviser Dr. Grepor “Butch” Belgica sa isang virtual meeting nitong Mayo 3 ang mga ahensyang suportahan ang naturang aktibidad.
“When he (the President) made a proclamation for a national week of prayer ang sabi ko po sa kanya noon was the most pleasing for the Lord will be for him to lead in calling the entire nation to come before the Lord who is the maker of heaven and earth,” saad ng Presidential Religious Adviser.
