Filipino Churches Hold Pre-Election Prayer Rally

Ad Feedback

As the Republic of the Philippines prepares for its national elections in May, the country's churches hosted a prayer rally that also served as a presidential forum.

Seven of the nine presidential candidates attended the event and answered questions in front of the audience.

Rather than focusing on their positions on the issues, the forum asked the candidates about the personal experiences that have shaped their views.

Leading in the polls is Benigno Aquino III, the son of the late Philippines President Cory Aquino and her martyred husband, Ninoy.

Aquino said his parents' faith in God carried the family through many adversities, and it's that same faith that is motivating him to run for office.

The May election is crucial for the Philippines, because the country is beset with political and economic crises.

Christians are hopeful that God will answer their prayers and intervene on the nation's behalf.
