Please Let Us Fulfill Our Responsibility Completely From A Bride-Like Position

Father! Please bear with our having been disloyal and unfilial people who have not known your heart, which is worried about our lonely selves, but rather have appealed to you to resolve our frustrations up until now.
Now that we have realized how pathetic and frustrated the heart of heaven is, please let us understand that we dare not tell you about our own situations.
Father! Since that alone is not sufficient, please allow us to be able to resolve your worries and your concerns through our own selves today, and we earnestly hope and desire, beloved Father, that you will allow us to become sons and daughters who can offer everything we have to you. Since today we are attempting to establish valuable conditions for the sake of heaven in the realm of our real daily lives, Father, please be with us.
In establishing heavenly conditions with the value of the whole, we have been showing ourselves to be unworthy by not being able to be happy about our sacrifices, but since from now on we will become sons and daughters who have minds which can enjoy it even if we are used for you without limit, Father, please allow that. Since we know that even Satan can not block our footsteps, we earnestly hope and desire, beloved Father, that you will help our minds not to change today or tomorrow.
Father, if we seek to become the brides of Jesus who is the groom, please allow us to realize that we are in a position such that if the groom is worried, we too must be worried, and if the groom fights, we too must fight together, and whether we live or die, we must move together with the groom. Please establish us in the position of brides who experience and feel keenly the joy of the groom who, having finished the course of the battle, sings of your glory in the grace of liberation.
In that way everything that has been lost will be found, and we earnestly ask that you will allow a day when we are able to sing praises to your glory with joy to appear quickly in the courses of our lives, in our daily lives, and in our hearts. We have humbly prayed all these thing in the name of the Lord. Amen.
