When the prayer, "Today I start the Change I Want to See," was recited to Rodolfo Noel Lozada Jr. before his testimony at the Senate on the NBN scandal, he felt that the world became silent, "and these are the only words that I could hear:"
- "Lord, let me be the change I want to see
To do with strength and wisdom
All that needs to be done
And become the hope that I can be.
Set me free from my fears and hesitations.
Grant me courage and humility.
Fill me with spirit to face the challenge
And start the change I want to see.
Today, I start the change I want to see.
Even if I’m not the light, I can be the spark.
In faith, service and communion
Let us start the change we want to see,
The change that begins in me."
