Father! Please Have Compassion
Sun Myung Moon
June 7, 1959
Father of compassion! Father of love! If you just leave these pitiful people as they are, they will never be able to get out from under the shadow of death. What is there for those of us in this situation to be proud about, and how can we come before you saying we are right? What do we possess that we could come before you defending ourselves? We have nothing. The only thing we have is our inadequacy, and the only thing we feel is our awe-stricken mind. Therefore, please have compassion, Father, for these people of death who are hoping for your compassion, your benevolence and your mercy. All of us are looking towards heaven eagerly awaiting for your hand to reach out to us. Therefore, we earnestly hope and desire, Father, that you will have compassion for us.
The time of the providence is hastening the Last Days, and the waves of death have swept around us and without any exception seek to swallow us. We know that you know we are faced with a chaotic environment, and your heart which worries about us remains on this earth, as do the footprints of your hard work. We know that as you look at all this you mind is inexpressibly anxious; therefore, Father, we earnestly hope and desire that you will lead us and have compassion for us at this time.
If we have lonely hearts, let us empty them out at this time and we must change them and take on your heart. If we are sorrowful and have inexpressibly frustrated hearts, we are in the pitiful situation of having to exchange them for your heart of joy and life. Oh Father who knows this, in spite of our being those who should take responsibility in your stead and relieve you of your difficult position, rather you are taking care of our difficult situation. And we earnestly hope and pray, Father, that you will bear with the fact that we are within the fallen realm and have to receive strength from you again.
Father! Please allow our hearts to be able to communicate with each other. We, who have been languishing in the realm of death and who had no destined relationship and were not acquainted, have gathered together referring to each other as the members of one family. Since we have gathered together adoring the idea of your heavenly providence, Father, we earnestly hope and desire that you will have compassion and come to us.
Could anyone have confidence in front of you, Father? Since you have said that you have confidence, we have hoped to have confidence, too, and since you have said that you feel this way, we too hope to feel that. If this is false, Father, please bear with us, and we earnestly hope and desire that you will personally take dominion.
Even when coping with a sad situation relating with humankind your sons and daughters could not have a situation where they could speak out their minds, and even when faced with a difficult situation, they had no family members with whom they could open their hearts. We earnestly hope and desire that you will take pity on them.
We know that in the world connected to your heart we move transcending the distances of time and space. Therefore, at this time, too, connected to that same heart, if the mind of heaven moves please let our minds be moved as well. Please inspire us by reaching out with your grace for all, and we earnestly hope and desire that you will connect us to your heart again. We have humbly prayed in the name of the Lord. Amen.
