MANILA, Jan. 20 — The Tarlac City-based Northern Luzon Command on Monday expressed it fully supports the declaration of Jan. 20 as the "National Day of Prayer."

Major Emmanuel Garcia, the command's acting spokesperson, said all Northern Luzon Command troopers join President Benigno S. Aquino III as the latter leads the entire nation in prayer around 5:00 p.m. Monday.

"(We will) take a moment to pray for our country as we move forward as one nation united towards a common goal," he stressed.

The "National Day of Prayer" was scheduled as a day of thanksgiving amid the recent disasters faced by the country, including the Zamboanga City siege, the Bohol earthquake, and the onslaught of Supertyphoon "Yolanda".

Delegates of various faiths will be joining President Aquino in Malacanang, including Manila Archbishop Luis Antonio Cardinal Tagle, Supt. Imam Ebra Moxsir of the Imam Council of the Philippines, Commissioner Zenaida Pawid of the National Commission of Indigenous Peoples, Isaias Samson of Iglesia ni Cristo and a representative of the Philippine Council of Evangelical Churches.
