We Will Go The Way Of The Will Gratefully

If we, who have been called first, have been established before the universal Will of the entire providence, as elements which are like crystals for the sake of making an external form, please do not allow us to forget that we must live for the sake of accomplishing the purpose of the whole.
We started along the way of the public providence today, but even though you cut off all the things around us, we could not go over the peak of sacrifice, and we are disappointed in ourselves; we lament ourselves, and we reproach ourselves.
Beloved Father! When we go over the peak of morality and the peak of materialism, please allow us to be able to willingly submit to this, even if you strike those things. Even if you take everything we have from us, as long as our lives remain, we must be able to thank you for that, and even if you strike our bodies, as long as our lives remain, we must be able to thank you. Please lead us to be able to become people who are like this.
Since we want to take the example of the footsteps walked by many generations of our ancestors and by the prophets of old, please guide us. We know that Jesus walked a path like this, too, as Job did, and as Abraham did, too. Since we know that today we, too, must cross this kind of path, Father, please guide us so that it will not take a long time.
Please let us be prepared in order to go over the peak of indignation which is definitely coming our way, and we earnestly hope and desire, Father, that you will allow us to become faithful servants of heaven who raise up the Lord of glory, by building up an altar of goodness, which we are able to go beyond while being grateful alone even if you scold and strike us.
By even going over peak after peak of sacrifice which the enemy is blocking, we will lead the family and go over the peak of the family, and lead the people and go over the peak of the people, and furthermore lead the world and go over the peak of the world and even leading heaven and going beyond. We earnestly hope and desire, Father, that you will lead us to become sons and daughters who are able to appeal with confidence to you, our eternal father, and that you will allow us true life, true peace, true joy, and true glory. We have humbly prayed all these things in the name of the Lord. Amen.
