The Prayers Of Reverend Sun Myung Moon - Volume Two: The Entreaty Volume
Please Allow Us To Have A Substantial Feeling
Sun Myung Moon
August 30, 1959
We do not want to believe in the Father of words; rather we want to believe in the Father who has created historical relationships. We are requesting a direct relationship with us today, a father with whom we can form a direct relationship, a father who can speak to us directly.
Today humankind believe in God as an objective being, but today we are not requesting that God be the kind of object of faith that they are seeking. We desire the God who is the substantial subject of our daily lives. We are longing for the father who can relate to all the realities of our lives and circumstances, and from whom we can not be separated even if we tried, and who dwells with us in every moment. The hour realizing this kind of relationship on the earth is the hour humankind is desiring and at the same time is the hour God desires.
Today we are conceptually thinking about what kind of ideal garden the garden of hope which you desire would be, but that is not our actual circumstances. We know the fact that the time has come that we must have the kind of concept of the Kingdom of Heaven which penetrates us beginning with our minds, and which through realization we can feel, and which through emotion we can sing.
We know that forming that kind of destined relationship was the purpose of the providence of salvation, the purpose of the history of restoration and the purpose of the salvation of the cross. Therefore, please allow us to be able to call you our real father, and even if we determine ourselves and recognize ourselves as your real sons and daughters please allow us to be able to sing from a position of not being ashamed, and to rejoice, and to be able to hear you speak. We have humbly prayed all these things in the name of the Lord. Amen.
