The Prayers Of Reverend Sun Myung Moon Volume 1
Please Let Us Become True Children Who Represent The Cosmos

Father of love! I had thought that Jesus came to the earth for the sake of finding me alone, but that was not all; I had thought that he came for the sake of my family, but that was not all, and I had thought that he came for the sake of the chosen people of Israel, but that was not all. He also was not a person who came for the sake of any one denomination.
We have come to understand that at the same time that Jesus was the hope of the created world, he came representing its entire value. Father, what kinds of minds do we have today in relation to Jesus who had the mission to restore everything like that? Please do not allow any of us to become a person who says, "I will die clinging to my family." Please do not allow any of us to become a person who says, "I will die clinging to my people, my nation, my world."
We earnestly hope and desire, beloved Father, that you will allow us to become people who are able to live risking our lives for the problem of the life and death of the cosmos, that is to say, even if I live, I represent heaven and earth, and even if I die, I die representing heaven and earth.
Today if there remain the sounds of the shouts of lamentation among the things of creation because the will Jesus had to restore was not accomplished, we earnestly hope and desire, Father, that you will allow us to become true sons and daughters who are able to give Jesus and you rest by letting us eliminate that, and please let us be able to form an eternal, destined relationship with you and even penetrate into your heart.
And please work together with us, Father, in order to resolve all historical enmity and to be able to receive the comfort of that resolution, and please allow us to be able to go forward together with you. Earnestly hoping that you will allow us to become true filial sons and filial daughters who are able to forget everything and praise heaven, we have prayed all these things in the name of the Lord. Amen.
