Please Allow Us To Make A New Beginning In The Midst Of This New Shock

Father! We have realized that when we are trying to think of a new work, we are not able to even think about it in the places where we have been doing things until now. We have realized that until we stop the flow of history and take a moment when we can think we can not awaken ourselves even though we want to.
We know that we can not be aroused from this sleeping appearance without receiving new stimulation. Therefore, Father, please continuously shock us anew so that we may be able to put aside the historical relationships we have. We know that we will not be able to be awakened if we do not have stimulated minds, therefore, please allow us to become beings who find such minds and know how to respect them.
In each age you sent a responsible person who could awaken us, Father. You looked upon fallen humankind, and since you held on with your sorrowful heart and let them live and go, Noah lived and went that way, and Moses, too, and Jesus also did that.
Oh Father! Please give us the shock of a new feeling at the bottom of our hearts. Please let us go beyond ourselves and experience your sorrow, and please give us minds which can be concerned for the people which is being swept into the world of death. If there is a person with this kind of mind, he is a person who can obtain the liberation of the people, and furthermore, if there is a person who has a mind which is clinging to the world and worrying about it, he is a person who will obtain the grace of worldwide liberation, and furthermore, if there is a person who knows how to be worried about cosmic liberation, he will not be ruined together with history. We know that he is a person who will leave a new history to the world. Therefore, today please do not let us become people who reveal our feelings and cling to ourselves and cry. We earnestly hope and desire, Father, that you will allow us to become people who represent your earnest heart as you look at us, Father, and please let us go towards the good which the whole is hoping for.
Please let us feel in your stead the mind which was anxious that we might not follow and that humankind might fall. Please let us follow your example and let us know how to look at the people and look at the world worried that those who are following might fall, and worried that those who have fallen might collapse and die. If there were sons and daughters who could look at you and say, "Father! I am here, and I have taken responsibility for your heart, so please rest," we know that kind of scene would mean that history is going in a new direction. Please let us become those people who know how to go forward having made all sorts of preparations to be able to begin in a new direction, and please let those of us who should begin in that direction who must awaken make a new decision and determination and pledge in our minds according to the appearance of the historical screams of misfortune.
We earnestly ask you to let us become those who know how to be awake as heaven is awake, and sorrowful or joyful together with the moral laws of heaven and with history. We have humbly prayed in the name of the Lord. Amen.
