Please Let Us Be Able To Cope With The Way Of Your Will On Our Own

Father! Each time we greet a new day, each time the morning sun shines on us anew, we will have to hope that day will become a new day centered on the Will, and we will have to become people who are able to yearn for your Will of hope which is like the bright sunlight. We know that there should not be any distance between us in our lives everyday, as well.
We must go and experience that the way you are going is also the way we must go; the place where you stay, is also the place where we must stay; the place where you are fighting is also the place where it will not do unless we fight, and the place where you are confronting the enemy is also the place where it will not do unless we confront the enemy as well.
We know well that in spite of the fact that the place that you are requesting is an earnest place where you want to come in contact with us, and it is a place where we pursue a historical mission, we are foolish people who, centered on our individual hopes, want to discuss with you while living our Cain-type lives.
Father! The children who have bowed down here must come to realize where the way they are going is, and where the place they are staying is. Do they have a proper attitude centered on an attitude of going forth to tomorrow? If our father is heading towards the East, are we standing in positions such that we can head to the East ourselves and take responsibility? We earnestly hope that you will allow us to clearly know that it will not do unless we realize on our own that we must know where the circumstances you are going through are heading, and we must know whether we are standing in the position of participating in those circumstances, and if we are not standing in that position, we are in a state where we must once again follow you with impatient minds.
The way of life is not a way we can go at someone's urging, and it is not a path we can go because someone leads us. We must particularly realize the fact that it can not be gone unless one is able to cope with it by oneself. We earnestly hope and desire that you will let us become your sons and daughters who are able to go forth adding the power of life while determining on our own, and who know clearly that we should not stand in a passive position.
Since we have bowed down before you sincerely at this time, when you gaze upon us, if we are in an evil position, please spur us on, and if we are in a good position, please hold our hands, and please let us appear as sons and daughters who are enthusiastic in relation to the Will of hope of tomorrow. And then we earnestly request that you will let us become your sons and daughters whom you can believe, and who are able to pioneer the position of filial piety and loyalty, by going forth taking responsibility on our own for all the conditions which oppose your Will by taking over your field of battle. We have humbly prayed in the holy name of the True Parents. Amen.
