It is with great sorrow all Malaysians have woken up this morning to the disappearance of yet another Malaysian airline - Air Asia flight QZ8501 disappeared from the radar 8 minutes after departure from Surabaya, Indonesia for Singapore at 6.20 a.m. (Malaysian time). The aircraft has reportedly crashed in the waters off East Belitung, off the east coast of Sumatra. 162 people (155 passengers and 7 crew) are missing including an infant.
It has been a year of great tragedy and disaster for Malaysia - most Malaysians are feeling numb at all that has happened...the disappearance of MH370, the shooting down of MH17 and now the crash of AirAsia QZ8501
Malaysia is right now also facing the most severe floods in years and over 160,000 people have been displaced. Desperate help is needed and many citizens' volunteer groups have sprung up via social media to help the official government efforts which are ill-prepared.
Rev. Fr. Mathew Naickomparambil V.C., the Spearhead of Divine-Potta ministry had blessed and prayed over Carol Lazar of Malaysia when she was attending the "CALLED...GIFTED...SENT FORTH" retreat for Priests, Religious & Lay Leaders in Ministry in Divine from 27July - 01 August 2014. Fr. Mathew guided and advised Carol to write a prayer to be shared with her fellow Malaysian Catholic friends which Father then went through and blessed the following day.
We call upon all Malaysians to storm heavens seeking God's Mercy and Protection for our homeland and for all Malaysians and our air carriers. Please do lift this prayer up during your daily personal prayers, your family prayers, with friends and within your prayer groups if possible. Let us claim the Promises of the Word of God on a DAILY basis:
"And so I tell all of you more: whenever two of you on earth agree about anything
you pray for, it will be done for you by my Father in heaven.
For where two or three come together in my name, I am there with them."
"When you pray and ask for something, believe that you have received it,
and you will be given whatever you ask for."
Below is the DIVINE PRAYER FOR MALAYSIA as blessed and guided by Fr, Matthew:
LORD, we pray for the 29 million people of Malaysia to be washed in the ocean of Your Most Precious Blood and be filled with the Holy Spirit.
We pray for miracles, healings and conversion of our hearts on the Infinite merits of the Passion, Death and Resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ.
LORD, send your angels to encamp around Malaysia.
Mother Mary , help us as we pray the Hail Mary...
Hail Mary Full of Grace! The Lord is with you,
Blessed are you amongst women and blessed is the fruit of your womb, Jesus.
Holy Mary, Mother of God - pray for us sinners now, and at the hour of our death.
We seek the prayers of readers of this post to please join in this prayer for Malaysia.
