House Speaker Lord Allan Jay Velasco is taking a page from the book of his predecessor, Taguig Rep. Alan Peter Cayetano, and seeking God’s help as he seems to be going through a rough patch.
Velasco posted on Instagram Tuesday (February 9) a series of art cards and screenshots on putting on the full armor of God.
In the caption, he wrote: “Today we put on the full armor to guard our lives against attack. We put on the belt of truth to protect against lies and deception. We put on the breastplate of righteousness to protect our hearts from the temptations we battle. We put the gospel of peace on our feet, so we’re ready to take your light wherever you send us this day.”
Velasco sought God’s help in facing challenges and asked for forgiveness “for the times we’ve been unprepared, too busy to care, or trying to fight and wrestle in our own strength.”
“Thank you that we never fight alone, for you are constantly at work on our behalf, shielding, protecting, strengthening, exposing deeds of darkness, bringing to light what needs to be known, covering us from the cruel attacks we face even when we’re unaware. In the powerful name of Jesus, Amen [clasped hands emoji],” he said.
Velasco’s cryptic Instagram post begs the question, is he in danger of losing the speakership?
