Father! Please Take Pity On Us
Sun Myung Moon

Oh Father! Please take pity on us. Without your grace we are pitiful people who can do nothing but die. Father, we earnestly hope and desire that you will not cast us aside and leave us, but will embrace us in your bosom of mighty love.
Until now your sons and daughters who have been following have not thought this path of struggle was difficult, but if it were not for your love, we could only have wandered, so please take pity on us. And please embrace us in your mighty love and please let us be able to experience the grace of glory which you permit to us.
We know that everything centered on humankind has an end, but every act centered on you continues forever, Father. Therefore, we earnestly hope and desire, Father, that you will remove everything centered on humankind and allow only things centered on you alone to appear out of the gardens of our hearts.
The more our earnest minds search for you, Father, and the more we long for your internal nature and as we desire more to go closer to your mind, there are many times we forget the fact that your great love is here among us without our knowing it. Please do not allow us to forget the fact that you are always together with us, to say nothing of when we are busy or in a hurry, and we earnestly hope and desire, Father, that you will not allow us to forget the fact that you are always living together with us.
Father! Please look upon us with compassion. Please take responsibility for our lives and take responsibility for our hope. If you would grant your hope to us please grant us the strength to be able to fight together with you until we make that garden of hope our own. And we hope and desire, beloved Father, that you would protect us so that we do not become exhausted in the battle with the enemy.
Since our hands and feet have been wounded while we made our way through the world of death, at this time we earnestly hope and desire, Father, that you will join hands with us and embrace us. Because we know that if you say you do not know us there would be no one more wretched than we are, Father, we earnestly hope and desire that you will please hold and comfort us.
If it were not your command we would not have been able to give up even our lives, but we have followed the command you have given and gone forth because it is called a true path. Therefore, Father, we earnestly hope and desire that you will not cast us away but rather embrace us at this time.
Father! Please look upon us with compassion. Please allow us to feel to our very bones that if it is not you, nothing will be accomplished, and if it is not your will, it will not be accomplished, and if it is not your work, it will not be accomplished.
We earnestly hope and desire that you will allow us to keep in our lives the work that you left, the will that you left, and the hope that you left, and that you will allow us to fight to the end, and to appear as your high-spirited sons and daughters. We have humbly prayed all these things in the name of the Lord. Amen.
