The Prayers Of Reverend Sun Myung Moon - Volume Two: The Entreaty Volume

Please Allow Us To Realize That We Are In A Miserable Situation

Sun Myung Moon

Father! We see that although the many people living on the earth are at the point of death, the present state of affairs is that they are pushing themselves forward and are busy bragging before the universe.

In this kind of world, can one dare to be proud of oneself? Can one assess one's own value highly? When we recall our hearts and weigh them in silence we will not be able to deny that we are faced with a false situation.

Father! Today what are our minds imagining, and what are we seeking to rise up to? The time has come that we must realize that now our minds are not able to be ours and our bodies are not able to be ours either. The time has come that we must recognize that we are in a miserable situation where we can not put ourselves forward and be proud of ourselves.

We can not make the final decision about the value of our minds and bodies. Please allow us to feel how miserable we are who can not lead even our own selves to the goal through the course of the situation which has occurred.

If we have life, it is not because of us, and if there is an ideology which leads our minds in the direction of goodness, please allow us to feel the fact that it also originates not in our selves but in something else.

Father! Today please allow us to realize that you are searching for a victorious person who knows how to take mastery over his ego and how to rid himself of the conceit which made him want to put himself forward and raise himself up and which made him intent on establishing and justifying himself. We have humbly prayed in the name of the Lord. Amen.
