Cavite Vice Governor Jolo Revilla shared a prayer on social media following the hospitalization of his COVID-19 positive father Senator Ramon “Bong” Revilla Jr.
The actor-politician posted a photo of him with his father alongside the lengthy prayer for frontliners and all those affected by the coronavirus pandemic, including his dad.
Bacoor, Cavite Mayor Lani Mercado on Tuesday afternoon revealed in a Facebook post that her husband was rushed to the hospital after developing pneumonia due to COVID-19.
“Itinataas rin po namin sa Inyo ang agarang paggaling ng aking Papa na si Senator Ramon Bong Revilla, Jr. Lubos po kaming nananampalataya na hindi Ninyo siya pababayaan at tuluyang pagagalingin upang muli namin siyang makapiling, maging ng aming mga kababayan na kanyang pinaglilingkuran,” part of Jolo’s prayer read.
“Tanging Kayo lamang ang aming Tagapagligtas, kaya patuloy kaming mananampalataya sa Inyo. Malaki man ang hamon na aming kinakaharap dahil sa COVID-19, mas malaki at mas makapangyarihan pa rin ang aming Diyos na Tagapagligtas,” he also wrote.
The senator first revealed his COVID-19 diagnosis on August 9, sharing that he had himself tested and went to isolation after a member of his household and staff tested positive for coronavirus.
He also told his followers online not to worry much about his condition, adding that his wife and children all tested negative.
“I am okay. Sila Lani at ang mga bata ay okay rin at sa awa ng Diyos, ay negative naman lahat,” he said.
