Opening Prayer for New Year’s Party

Dear God, we thank you for giving us the chance to be together during this New Year.

We thank you for your generosity and love the previous year, and for all the blessings
You’ve bestowed on us.

This New Year, may we continue to a blessing to others, just as you have blessed us.

May we mend the errors of our ways, and be a light in the dark for the world.

Grant us the Divine Wisdom to discern what traits we should avoid this coming New Year.

Bestow upon us your spirit that we may serve you through other people.

May you grant that this year will be a year of prosperity and love for all men.

All this we ask through Jesus Christ, our Lord, Amen.

Executive Order of US President Obama for Mayweather to Fight Pacquiao?

A meme has started to go viral online with the picture of US President Barrack Obama issuing an Executive Order to Floyd Mayweather Jr. to Fight Pacquiao. The source of the image is unknown and is doing the rounds on Facebook.

Obama to Mayweather: Fight pacquiao

Obama to Mayweather: Fight Pacquiao

This expresses the desire of millions of boxing fans who want to watch the most awaited fight of this era.

Manny Pacquiao’s Footlocker advertisement has shown him being overjoyed (“Yes, he’s going to fight me”) with the prospect of Mayweather finally consenting to fight him. However, Mayweather still remained mum on the issue.

Indeed, if President Obama can issue an Executive Order for the two boxing greats to face each other in the ring, it will be an incredible treat for boxing fans all over the world.

Mayweather can never be a true champion – even if he’s undefeated – because he refuses to fight the only 8 world-title boxing champion in the world.

Watch this funny fan video uploaded by Nanny Pacquiao at YouTube expressing Pacman’s wish of fighting Mayweather.

Meanwhile, Pacquiao continues to urge Mayweather to fight him in 2015. From his official Twitter account Pacquiao tweeted:

Darren Espanto can compete with the likes of Hallyu stars, Lee Min Ho and Kim Soo Hyun, popular Korean actors in Asia, including the Philippines. Lee Min Ho’s acting prowess has swept the country via his starring roles in several blockbuster TV series such as: “Boys over Flowers” and “The Heirs”, while Kim Soo Hyun starred in the recent Philippines’ TV hit, “The Man from the Stars.” Darren has that handsome “slanted” look, and star quality that will make him more famous as these Korean stars, as the days go by.

Darren Espanto is tagged as the Total Performer because of the brilliance he demonstrates on stage by his sterling performances. Gary Valenciano was the original title holder of the title, and now it’s befitting that Darren receives the accolade, as well.

Darren may not be the winner of The Voice, but he is the most popular among the five finalists, and is the only Voice Kids’ finalist who has performed in concert all over the country. His recent homecoming concert back in Edmonton, Canada was well attended.
Darren Espanto, who is only in his teens, has captured the hearts of young and old alike through his charisma and superb performances. It is inevitable that he’ll soon be filming movies too.

Meanwhile, an original song writing contest is conducted for fans out there, who would want to compose a song for Darren. The mechanics are found on Darren’s Facebook page. The criteria are: Originality = 50%, message of the song = 30% and Facebook likes = 20%. Fans who are interested may join by visiting www.facebook.com/OfficialDarrenEspantoWorld.
