Prayers, A Lifetime Of Conversation With Our Heavenly Father - Sun Myung Moon

Restoration [Part 2 of 4]

Please Let A New Age Come, In Which We Are Able To Love Even Cain

Oh Father! Now please let us know clearly at what stage the responsibility is that we must fulfill through this people, and at what moment the circumstances of the world and heaven and earth are, while going through this point.

Even though we have minds, we have wills, we have bones, and we have flesh, we have not been able to think about the duties of heavenly morality with proper emotions. Father, please allow us to be able to set a standard that will allow you to set us up and boast about us through our having established the duty of loyalty to heaven, the duty of filial piety to heaven, and the duty of virtue to heaven. In order to do that, please let us have minds that are able to bear fruit throughout the world by surpassing the standard that can connect to the heart of the parents.

We know that until now, it has been the age of the parents who could love only Abel. But we know that because we have hearts such that it will not do unless they love Cain as well, a new heart of the parent is budding out here, which has not existed in other ages and which can save this world. And please let us clearly know the fact that you are establishing a new historical, substantial foundation here, and please let us be unchanging people.

Please let us know clearly the fact that it will not do unless we stand in the position of being able to love ourselves and at the same time love the world more, and to love Abel and at the same time love Cain more.

We earnestly hope and desire that you will let us know clearly the fact that without Cain, Abel cannot exist, and that we cannot prepare the destined relationship of the blessing on this earth without standing in a position of being able to make Cain submit to us, and that you will let us go the way we must go on our own.

Please let us understand the fact that in the future one will not receive prizes from you or be recommended for positions according to the knowledge or accomplishments one has on one's own; rather, one will receive prizes from you and be recommended for positions according to how much one has prepared a foundation of education as your sons and daughters in the family, and according to how much one lives a heartistic life in relation to heaven centered on the family.

Please let us realize that that is the foundation being established on the earth of the Kingdom of Heaven you hope for, by connecting the destined relationships of new horizontal families which have not existed in history on this earth until now.

We have prayed all these things in the name of the True Parents. Amen.

Please Let Us Become People Who Establish The World-Level Day Of Dedication

Father! We know that our human ancestors should have become one flesh by realizing the love of the couple together with the destined relationship of your love.

We know that centered on the love through which you and our human ancestors became one, all the things of creation should have become one in the midst of the destined relationship of the four position foundation at that point. But we know the fact that because of the fall of the human ancestors, all the things of creation entered a realm of lamentation and God also is lamenting.

When we look back on the course of the history of the providence of restoration, we see that the things of creation were always placed in the forefront in order to restore humankind. By becoming one with those things of creation, centered on God at that point, humankind and the things of creation were connected so that they could become one.

You connected those kinds of destined relationships centered on each individual, but today it will not happen only with individuals. We know that because the first ancestors of humankind fell before realizing the couple, it will not do unless one standard is established that is able to connect us with God centered on couples.

Please allow us to know clearly that a new task remains such that all of the things centered on that couple must absolutely pass through the name of God, and must pass through the name of the True Parents.

We must know the fact that without going through that, we of today could not have been created. And we know that the grief of all the things of creation is resolved only at the point where they become one with the True Parents; and all the things of creation are able to become one with God through all the things of creation which belong to God, and through all the good things of creation which were formed just as we were formed by him.

We earnestly hope and desire that you will allow us to realize clearly the fact that the origin of the world-level standard is realized centered on the family in the horizontal world of today.

Please let us feel once again today that until now we have not been able to offer devotion in order to have them be able to be things like that, and we have not lived lives of offering devotion for the sake of a day when we will offer those things to you completely as people who eat them, use them, leave them as leftovers, and manage them.

We know that there definitely must appear on the earth a day of dedication which is able to dedicate them in order, by forming the destined relationship of the family, and by passing through the destined relationship of the nation up until the destined relationship of the world.

We know that a day of celebration must be realized in which all humankind offer to you our entire family and everything we own through our families, through our tribes, through the peoples, the nations and the entire world. In other words, we know that it will not do unless a day is established in which we are registered as families in the family registry of heaven.

Father! Please allow us to offer everything we have to you completely, and to offer ourselves and our families to you in order to welcome that day. And please let us know that by forming a destined relationship with the parents of heaven, that is to say, the True Parents, and by having it all redistributed to us through their embrace of love, we must remain as the successors of the eternal enterprise, and please let us come to know that we have this kind of amazing mission.

We know that this kind of thing must happen on the individual level, and it must happen on the levels of the family, the tribe, the nation and the world. We earnestly hope and desire that you will allow us to become children who know clearly that everything must be connected as a thing of heaven by our carrying out a ceremony of purification in order to accomplish this on the world level.

We have humbly prayed all these things in the holy name of the True Parents. Amen.

June 15, 1969: the seventh Day of All Things

Please Awaken Us To The Fact That We Are People Who Represent History, The Present Age And The Future

Father! We must feel once again the fact that humankind has infinite value and a destined relationship.

Children who seem inadequate to you have come here and are calling out to you. We must not forget that in order for our individual selves to become the beings of the age today, behind the scenes there have been destined relationships of tears between our many ancestors and you.

When we think about the fact that among the many people of the world today, we have been called, centered on the destined relationship, we earnestly hope that you will allow us to discover that although it seems that we look like beings who are nothing special, and who are very shabby, we are awesome people who are representing history and who are representing the present age.

We have come to realize that heaven exists in order to love people, the earth exists in order to love people, and you created humankind in order to love them. Accordingly, is not your highest goal the realm of love where your mind, which wants to embrace and love all humankind, can reach everyone in an environment of freedom, in the heaven and earth of freedom without being restricted?

We must become people who inherit your providential matters like this, and who are able to directly cry out and shout about it to all humanity. And we earnestly hope and desire that you will allow us to clearly know the fact that we provide the motivation so that the work of heaven can be spread from here to the whole world.

Today, centered on a new historical destined relationship, our church is accomplishing world-level development by realizing new relationships. All of this is not boasting about the past, and it is not boasting about a present social organization or form. Please allow us to realize that we have begun walking this way from a position of seeking to love the people of history, to love the people of the present age, and to love the people of the future.

In our one generation we must resolve the grief of our many ancestors and the saints and sages of history who were not able to receive true love, and we must become the center which all people are seeking, from a position of being able to love the people of this age today to compensate their not having been loved. We hope that you will allow us to begin with the basic matter of our loving people as a decisive condition which will allow us to connect here the destined relationships of the new beginning of the future.

We have humbly prayed all these things in the name of the True Parents. Amen.

Please Bless All Humankind And The Many Spirit People From Children's Day On

Beloved Father! Today is the ninth anniversary of Children's Day. Please let your love dwell with the children who are sincerely praying throughout the nation facing this place.

Father! Please bless all the people by reaching out with your holy love from this day on. And please bless not only the people who are on earth, but also the many people who have followed your Will and the many spirits who died for the Will in the course of history up until now.

Since we know that the way of the absolutely necessary destiny remains, which is the course of indemnity that must be gone by being resurrected on the earth, please let them form invisible destined relationships with us, centered on the activities of the Unification Church today, and centered on our work.

And we earnestly hope and desire that you will allow the many spirit people in the spirit world to become one with us, and even their descendents to become one with us centered on the physical standard, so that we may establish the nation of unification which you desire.

Father! We earnestly hope and desire that you will allow what is realized on earth to be realized in heaven as well by your personally carrying out works of liberation for our many ancestors who have lived and died while taking responsibility during the course of restoration for the sake of your Will.

Please allow us to be able to go forward centered on you, to become true children centered on the destined relationship of the True Parents, and centered on the destined relationship of true children, please let us realize true families, and through true families, please let us realize true tribes, true peoples, true nations, a true world and a true cosmos.

We have earnestly prayed in the holy name of the True Parents. Amen.

November 10, 1969: the tenth Children's Day

Please Let The Unification Movement Resolve The Grief Of The History Of Troubles

We have come to know your heart which was indignant when Adam fell in the Garden of Eden. And we know that you walked over peaks of hard work for four thousand years in order to restore that. And furthermore, we know your deep mind which sent Jesus Christ as the torch of hope, as the torch of sacrifice to the people of Israel on this earth.

We know that you sent Jesus in hope, while looking forward to the day of restoration, but because the people opposed him and the environment did not welcome him, we know your heart was indignant as you had to watch while he died on the cross.

The history of blood, which has continued down since that day until now, has stained the history of this earth, and it has left traces in the minds of humankind. And in the spirit world, the many saints and sages and martyrs who have come and gone in the course of history, are looking forward eagerly to the day of victory and the day of the resolution of grief.

We must realize that the time of hope that they are looking forward to eagerly is this very age, this very moment, and we must be truly grateful to have been born in this awe-inspiring, amazing, historical age. And then we must become your sons and daughters who determine to fulfill the duties of loyalty and filial piety by being on fire with a serious sense of mission.

Now the Unification Church has laid a foundation such that it will not disappear from this earth. There are many children who worked hard during that time for the sake of this. Until now we have overcome many things for the sake of the way the world must go, centered on the thirty million Korean people, on this nation, and on this land, and they have hearts that have been mistreated historically and which could not share their situations with anyone at all. How very hard you must have worked in order to protect us in the midst of that! We sincerely thank you.

Since we all have gathered together our weak hands, and our weak bodies are all bent down before you, please command us anew. While remembering the past days when we carried the responsibility of heaven and shed blood and tears in each part of the entire country, we have realized that our whole religious group must move forward once again in the future as well, representing this people.

Therefore, please let us realize that now the time has indeed come when we must work. Please let us realize that now the time has indeed come when we must fight. And we earnestly hope and desire that, after we offer everything to you, you will let us run out without hesitation for the sake of the liberation of this nation and this people.

We have humbly prayed all these things in the holy name of the True Parents. Amen.

Please Let Us Bear The Fruit Of The Six-Thousand-Year History Of Restoration

Father! Please let us awaken to this historical mission which is that it will not do unless the Will you have hoped for bears fruit through us today, and that it will not do unless the Will Jesus has hoped for bears fruit through us today.

When we consider that this mission has been bequeathed to us through the price of so much blood, please let us know the fact that we have the responsibility of having to open the gates of the new Kingdom of Heaven of brightness and to enter triumphantly starting from here.

Please let us come to know that you have endured up until now by hoping for this, and Jesus and the Holy Spirit endured and went the path of death, and many saints and sages also looked forward to this day and endured, while shedding the blood of martyrdom at the hands of diabolical enemies.

Please awaken us to how important and great our individual missions are as we face this kind of crux of history. We know that even Jesus who was born in a lonely manner in the village of Bethlehem had a destined relationship with you.

As we think that today we have the responsibility of spreading that Will, which is now centered in the land of Korea, horizontally throughout the world, please, awaken us to how tense and serious a position this is.

As we reflect on the six thousand years of your holy history of the providence of restoration through which you sought to have your bear fruit through Jesus by carrying out restoration through indemnity of all the things lost due to the mistake of Adam in the Garden of Eden, we earnestly request that you will let us remain as children who are able to become completely one with your Will by having new minds and new bodies today.

We have humbly prayed all these things in the name of the True Parents. Amen.

January 3, 1970

Please Let Us Become Abels Who Are Able To Make Cain Submit Voluntarily

While going forward until now with inexpressible matters in your heart, how very much you must have wanted to express those matters! We have gone forward looking for the aspect of Abel with a humble attitude today also before you, our Father, who has endured and gone forward while hoping for the day to come in which we can raise up glory with praise, and we can praise the victory together with all nations; therefore, please remember us.

We have come to know that the purpose of Abel is to attend you alone with his entire mind, and his purpose is to restore his elder brother, Cain. We have come to know that what is needed for that is not awareness about oneself, but a new awareness about you, and a new awareness about the world.

Father, we know that you are an absolute being, and you are the center of the world. But we have come to know that unless Abel can make Cain submit, you cannot stand in a position at the center of the world. We have come to know the fact that it will not do unless Abel creates the motivation to be able to attend you as the center of the world from a position of awareness. It is said that this is the starting point of restoration.

Father! Is the Unification Movement standing in an Abel-type position in relation to this people? Now more than a consciousness centered on our movement, we must have a strong consciousness of living for you. More than a consciousness of living for our movement, we must have a strong consciousness of living for the nation. And we must know that when we are able to attend you and that nation in our minds, the fact that we are able to attend you and to make Cain submit as well, that is the starting point of restoration.

When we look at the world dominated by Cain, oh Father, we see that the world has lost its way. Even America, which is standing as the spearhead of the democratic world, has lost its way. The advanced nations are in that situation, too,

Because of that, the world has run into a wall of disruption in which from the youth, to those in their prime of life, to the elderly, people cannot find their center. Here we must be able to make Cain submit voluntarily by having become subject partners of the new Abel-type belief.

Please allow us to realize that you are very happy when you see an Abel-type person who has a new world viewpoint, and when you come to know that this kind of environment is coming to this world. Please allow us to become one with this Abel.

The Cain world submits itself when our individual selves become one with you, and our families become one with you. Since we knew that, the Unification Movement has held up the word, "blessing," and has gone forward fighting until now in order to become the heavenly side by bonding individuals to you and by bonding families to you.

When these families become one with you, the satanic world can submit itself voluntarily, and when we go forth holding up a banner in order to build an Israel centered on these families the world can submit itself voluntarily.

Father! Since the environment that allows Cain to submit himself voluntarily is arriving right in front of us, it will not do for us to become disappointed here. We must become people who know clearly the fact that we cannot make the world into one unless we, of course, awaken ourselves, and become people who are able to awaken the Cain world.

We must realize that this is the position of Abel. Please let those of us who know these kinds of facts know what the position is like where we are able to live together with you, and what dignity Abel must have, and what authority Abel must seek.

We have humbly prayed all these things in the holy name of the True Parents. Amen.

March 15, 1970

Please Let Us Walk The Public Course Of Indemnity

Father! The way we must go now is not an ambiguous way. We know that the people who live, seeking a more public way, become the victors who have dominion over historic We know that even if they could not take the sovereignty on this earth, they are given a special privilege to be able to have dominion over eternal history.

When we think that these kinds of serious moments are being decided on the stage of our daily lives, we feel that this position we are standing in is a frightening position which makes us tremble, and the course of our lives is a frightening one, which makes us tremble.

Father! Today we must go the public course of indemnity. We must cast away our individual selves and go the public course of indemnity. You have taught us to go the public way in order to leave behind only the way that brings the greatest victory. Because we must transcend our circumstances in order to go this public way, we know that it will not do unless we serve each other and live for each other.

We know that, even if we meet persecution and suffering on the absolutely necessary course as we go towards the purpose, when we stand in a more public position, you let us overcome that by definitely giving us more strength. Please do not allow us to forget that we have that kind of eternal backup and we have that kind of eternal frontline.

We have realized that, even if we die, you are our Father who will embrace us and bury us with a glory that is thousands and hundreds of thousands of times more valuable. When we realize that our future is a way that can only be victorious, we cannot help but thank you.

Now please allow the Unification Movement to become a holy group that is able to handle this final public mission by representing the destiny of this people and by representing the destiny of this world which remain through the entire Unification Movement being united together.

Please let those of us who are going forward like this become a movement which increases in strength in front of the hope of tomorrow and not one that loses strength as the days pass.

We have humbly prayed all these things in the name of the TrueIrate Parents. Amen.

May 24, 1970

Please Let Us Reflect On The Shameful Past As We Welcome The Day Of All Things

Father! We find ourselves reflecting once again on that time when we had to decide the destined relationship of indemnity, whether we would go to the right or go to the left at the crossroads in the battle, which no one could know, centered on the 1960s, until the time when the Day of All Things was established.

At that time, the place where the blessing was given and at that time, the place where destined relationships were formed was an anxious place, and it was a deep valley among deep valleys. It was a place that beloved parents opposed; brothers and sisters opposed, and relatives who had destined relationships of love opposed.

Standing in a valley, where we had lost everything like this, we attended you, and we possessed a value that we had found instead, and in the midst of hope, centered on you, the history of the families of the Unification Church began.

Following that destined relationship, Parents' Day, Children's Day, and The Day of All Things were established. The day that was established on the foundation of these days is God's Day. In spite of the fact that this God's Day should have become The Day of All Things right away, should have become Children's Day, and should have become Parent's Day, we have come to realize the fact that we possess these days of glory which should have been realized in one day by having patched them together piece by piece over time.

Please let us become people who are able to pledge, while gritting our teeth and biting our tongues, that, even if other people do not have filial piety, I alone will fulfill filial piety, and who are able to sympathize with your pitiable mind while kneeling down and shedding tears each time this day comes.

We earnestly hope and desire that you will let us become your sons and daughters who realize the truth that there is an original meaning why we are commemorating this day on which many people are making this kind of pledge each time this day comes.

Today please do not let your sons and daughters who are gathered in this place know The Day of All Things only by its literal meaning. Please let us realize that the things of creation are not the problem, the person, whom the things of creation are able to follow, is the problem, and whether that person can follow you is the problem.

Please let as realize that the things of creation want to be taken care of and governed by a true person who can do that. Please let as become your sons and daughters who love the world and who love all the things of creation. Earnestly requesting that you will please let us become your sons and daughters who are able to be more deeply aware than anyone else of the value of the things of creation, and who are able to care for the things of creation, we have humbly prayed all these things in the holy name of the True Parents. Amen.

June 4, 1970: the eighth Day of All Things

Please Let Us Live For You And For The Future World

Oh Father, who dwells in a place of glory in relation to this point at which God's Day comes! Oh Father, who is the Lord who leads everything! Oh Father, who is the essence of omnipotence and an absolute being!

Oh Father, who is the ideal of life and love! Since you have already established this inadequate group which is on earth today as your descendents, and you have already chosen us as your blood lineage, please embrace and love us in your mind. We earnestly hope and desire that you will not cast us away.

Because you have not cast these people away, the Unification Movement will become an Abel-type movement, won't it? Because of that, we will embrace the established churches. Due to our movement and the established churches becoming one, please embrace this people to your heart through this Abel-type standard.

Then the Korean people and the Korean Peninsula must become able to erect the foundation of liberation for this nation. In order to do that, today the Unification Church members must become one, centered on their teacher. We must not become a group of people who were born for our own ambitions, or who live for our own ambitions.

We earnestly request and desire that you will allow us to become holy sons and daughters who are able to live for you and to live for the sake of the future world because we were born for your sake and we were born for the sake of the future world.

Since we bind our inadequate minds together into one today, and offer them to you, please accept them. Since today at this time, we have gathered together with minds that pledge that we will become one by going beyond our lives and centering on you Father, please be together with us here.

Since it is said that in the place where there is give and take, there is multiplication, and in the place where there is give and take, you dwell, oh Father, through the unity and give and take between the family of the teacher and the families blessed by you, please let this nation, which has not yet awakened, receive the destiny of the new age, and please let the foundation of the blessing, which can open the gates of liberation, be connected to the religious world and this people, and please connect it to this nation and this land. We earnestly request that you will quickly accomplish the course of world-level indemnity centered on American and Germany by blessing Japan and China in Asia.

We have prayed all these things in the name of the True Parents. Amen.

January 1, 1971

Please Let Us Become People Who Know The Age Of The Providence

Father! Please let us become people who know the age. We know that it is truly difficult to know the age of the providence. We know that in order to know the age, it will not do unless we appear as the sinner among sinners, and it will not do unless we appear as lonely people.

I myself know well that it is very difficult to conform to the age unless we have hearts that are in the position of a lonely person, in the position of a hungry person, as a hungry baby yearning for its mother's breast.

Please let your sons and daughters, who are gathered here, realize how many times we have conformed to the age of heaven in our lives, and how many times we made you, who had come to us, shed tears and turn back.

Please let us become your children who are able to struggle, saying that we will now become sons and daughters of filial piety and settle the accounts of the past when we were unfilial children. We earnestly hope that you will let us know sincerely that your sons and daughters must inherit the mission of the age, which means to follow you.

It is a mission such that it will not do unless we at least determine that we will remain as people who are struggling before you and who forget ourselves while longing to become filial children, even if we cannot become filial children.

Since humankind cannot know what decides the issue of our living and dying in a certain age, we must realize that only the way of going forward with a mind that is seeking to be careful always, to be humble always, and to sacrifice always will guarantee and protect us.

If one age passes by, then once again an enemy in the position of Cain denounces us and blocks our way. But when we go forward offering devotion, when we see the proven developmental course of being able to go forward taking things away after being struck, we feel that you are indeed a being to be pitied, and the people who know the age of heaven and who are shouldering the mission of heaven are indeed a group of people who are to be pitied and whom you cannot help but love.

Because you are like that, we have come to know that you always sympathize with your son, if it is a son, or your daughter, if it is a daughter, who is in that kind of position, and you seek to be together and to act together in that realm of the environment of the same destiny.

When we realize that humankind today have the responsibility to attend our Father who is like that, not from a position of being indebted, but rather from a position of comforting you, we must realize that we are people who have the mission of having to fulfill this kind of responsibility.

Through our becoming people who know the age and conform to the age, we earnestly hope that you will let many precious people appear from among the Unification Movement members, who are able to be remembered and whose names can be praised on this earth, by your praising us and by our many ancestors of the spirit world returning glory to us.

We request over and over again that you will bless us to be able to remain as a movement that heaven and earth can remember and that absolutely does not miss the age by becoming people who know the age.

We have humbly prayed all these things in the holy name of the True Parents. Amen.

January 31, 1971

Please Let Us Go Beyond The Family Level Course Of Indemnity

Beloved Father! Through the Divine Principle we have learned that the foundation you are seeking is the restoration of the four position foundation. We have realized that the four position foundation is realized when something that has been divided from the complete origin forms a union once again.

Through the Divine Principle we know that the world of the ideal of creation which you desire cannot be realized by anything else outside the realm of the four position foundation. When someone asks, "What is the perfection of the purpose of creation that God desires?" we say that it is the perfection of the four position foundation.

Father! We know that the husband and the wife must be in a position of having become one in order for their sons and daughters to become one. Since the mission to fulfill the responsibility that can be offered to you carefully has been entrusted to the Unification Movement, Father, please love this movement.

Oh Father! The families of the Unification Movement must become families you can trust. When we think that the reason you have overcome the way of suffering for thousands of years was in order to find a decisive object partner who could be victorious as a family by establishing this kind of family, we sincerely thank you that you have allowed the time to come in which the families of the Unification Movement are all able to be mobilized today.

We have clearly understood that only when the course of indemnity that must be gone over as a family is gone over, only then will the branches of the family spread out in the heaven and earth of freedom in which you can rejoice. It is a joy that the final age has come in which an age of rewarding value can be concluded in our own lives, no matter what situation we are in, whether we are sleeping or awake.

We know that many saints and sages died while going forward with hope for this age, and the fact that they died without fighting together with the Will for the sake of the nation and the world has been their grief for thousands of years.

Therefore, please let us become sons and daughters who are able to be exceedingly grateful that we are families who have the destined relationship of victory, and we are families who are standing in a position of being able to be blessed more than anyone else.

Your beloved children who are out fighting on the frontline must be able to think of you alone, and to offer everything to you alone. Having left behind their husbands and children, they are taking responsibility for the frontline, and they are going out day by day to pioneer in order to have concrete results which are proof. Therefore, you will absolutely have to be together with them here. We must realize that there is more value in their offering filial piety to you than in witnessing.

Father! As they go on their way to the world of the enemy while representing all humankind and representing this people, please let them be holy daughters who know how to be decisive about forming and breaking relationships.

We earnestly hope that you will let them know the fact that through this period the will receive from you the special privilege that lets the day of victory come by their now treading upon and standing upon the history of shame in which women could not find their dignity due to the grief of six thousand years.

We have humbly prayed all these things in the holy name of the True Parents. Amen.
