Connie Rose wrote the concern for March 2017 for the Philippines, the source country of the World Day of Prayer 2017 service.
I asked people from the Philippines living in my community what their prayer concerns for their homeland were. They shared their desire for an ordered society free from the corruption and chaos that comes with criminal activity.
Eternal Father, I am depending on you to protect and rescue us, and save us from all persecutors who unjustly attack. My prayer is for the Philippines, for a better and faster justice system. I pray that the system will be restored and will crack down on corruption. My prayer is that the principles of justice be applied effectively and create a more stable and secure nation for all.

Members of the Women's Inter-Church Council of Canada have contributed monthly prayer concerns to invite and support participation in the Fellowship of the Least Coin (FLC). The FLC is a prayer movement for justice, peace and reconciliation in our own lives and the lives of others.
Each time a person participating in this movement prays for justice, peace and reconciliation, she sets aside one “least coin” from the currency of her country as a tangible symbol of her prayer.
We invite you to pray with us and put your least coins to work alongside least coins from around the world. For more information, visit our FLC pages at http://www.wicc.org/fellowship/
