Our Lady of Manaoag
I first heard about Our Lady of Manaoag when I was in highschool. I was browsing a travel magazine when I came across a page containing her picture and a prayer. I was about to join a school competition that time, so I cut the aforementioned portion of the magazine. Luckily or miraculously, I won. From then on, I recite the prayer everytime I need a miracle no matter how minute or gigantic it may be. I remember one time when I was stuck in traffic and I had to be early for an exam. I prayed hard and weird things happened, I arrived late yet the exam commenced right after I arrived. Well, this prayer really works for me though I must say that I don't just recite it, I profess it with all the sincerity that must go with a prayer. After some time I realized that I should pray to her not only to express my intentions, but also to thank her. I've been wanting to pay her a visit but I didn't get the chance to go to Pangasinan. Another strike of luck, last last week my uncle called and said that her image was brought to the Archbishop's palace in Mandaluyong. We immediately went there and prayed. I just want to share this prayer and I hope it touches your life too (don't forget to say your thanks :) ). There may be times when we feel like all of our prayers are left unanswered, but sooner or later we tend to realize that we get what's best for us at the very right time. So just have faith and do the right things. Ika nga nila 'Nasa Diyos ang awa nasa tao ang gawa.'
PRAYER TO OUR LADY OF MANAOAG
Virgin Mother of God, Queen of the most Holy Rosary, Thou who hast chosen to raise thy throne of mercy in Manaoag, to be the beloved protectress and patron of the Province of Pangasinan, and therefrom to bestow thy graces on us thy children, banished in this alley of tears, look down with Thine eyes of mercy upon me, who am beset with so many dangers of body and soul. Despise not my petition O dearest Mother, but intercede for me before thy divine Son now and at the hour of my death. Amen.
VIRGIN OF MANAOAG, Pray for us.
