Please Let Us Become Children Who Respect Your Counsel

We know that it was you who blessed this chosen group and it is you who will make them succeed. We know that the origin of our mind is goodness, and that we move through goodness, and we know that the purpose of goodness, the historical purpose, and the providential purpose all become one centered on you, Father. Accordingly, please allow the ideological apex which we are longing for to bear fruit through spirits of goodness, and we earnestly hope and desire, Father, that you will allow this time to become one when we establish ourselves as people who go forward steadily in order to become this ideology itself.
Please allow us to take a good look at the direction our minds are heading, and our bodies are heading. Now please allow our minds to be able to devote their entire energies to longing for you and to admiring goodness. And please allow our bodies to be able to struggle in order to hold on to goodness and to thirstingly, urgently fold our hands and call out to you, Father.
Since we know that the history of 6,000 years is a history through which we have held on to you and appealed to you, Father, we earnestly hope and desire, beloved Father, that you will allow this to become a moment when we are able to reveal ourselves honestly and bow down before you, and report to you truthfully about all our situations, and we can receive the counsel of your bidding.
Since it was you who drove us out along the way others said no to, and it was you who guided us along the way that was so difficult to go, please take responsibility for this way, Father. We have not moved in accordance with any kind of human mind, and we have not been pulled along by any kind of human situation, and since we have come to this point led by the power of the mind and could not help coming whether we wanted to or not, please lead us not to be lazy.
Since we do not know your words of counsel which urge us on, please give us hour by hour the stimulation of your power to realize your word and to head out in the direction of that word. And we earnestly hope and desire, Father, that you will not let any person fall behind on the course going towards you at long last.
Please allow us to place everything we have before you now, Father, and please do not allow your altar to be defiled because of us, and we earnestly hope that you will allow this to become a time of our bowing down to make an offering to you with complete sincerity. We have humbly prayed all these things in the name of the Lord. Amen.
