MANILA — Exactly two weeks after the tragic clash in Mamasapano, Maguindanao — marking one of the darkest moments of his presidency — President Benigno Simeon Aquino III turned 55 years old.

In a simple get-together with his family, PNoy celebrated his birthday.

“Whether in times good or bad, the President has always celebrated his birthday simply and with his family,” Presidential Spokesman Edwin Lacierda said in an interview on Radyo ng Bayan.

Lacierda shared the presidential staff’s wish and prayer for the Commander in Chief on his birthday.

“We pray for peace, for wisdom for the President,” Lacierda said. “We pray that he will continue to be guided and most especially, we ask the Filipino people to always pray for him.”

Lacierda said that he always asks their friends to pray for the President, because prayers mean a lot to PNoy.

“One of the things that we’ve always asked—and I’ve always asked privately to those friends of ours, not only to our friends from the religious sector—is to always pray for the President because it means a lot to him,” Lacierda shared.
