All were Catholics, except one. All of these presidents took advantage of the power of prayer to God. They all prayed daily, weekly, monthly, and yearly to God. Especially to help them as president to straighten out the social, political, economical, religious, and governmental mess throughout the country. Especially since the Philippines is the only Catholic country in Asia since the 16th century. Soon, next year, we will have a new Catholic president. Again, it is highly expected, that he or she will continue to faithfully pray to God to help fix once and for all the social, political, economical, religious, and governmental mess out of our poor and sick and corrupt and backward country. For my part, as an atheist, I hope, this time, finally, God will listen to the old prayers of the new President of the Republic of the Philippines.- Poch Suzara Twitter# Facebook# Google#
