Byline: LESLIE ANN G. AQUINO

Members of various religious groups, together with civil society and other sectors, will gather along Ayala Avenue in Makati City today for an inter-faith rally to condemn corruption in government.

Participants of the interf-aith rally, which will start at 5 p.m., will storm the heavens with prayers for truth, justice, accountability and meaningful change in the country amid the alleged controversies hounding the Arroyo administration.

"We need God's help for us to have the courage and (keep) fighting for truth and justice," Lingayen- Dagupan Archbishop Oscar Cruz said during Wednesday's press briefing in Intramuros, Manila.

The Philippine National Police (PNP) meanwhile assured that it will field all its available personnel to ensure that the mass action in Makati will be peaceful and orderly.
