Please Let Us Have Minds and Bodies of Oneness Centered on the Will

Prayers: A Lifetime Of Conversation With Our Heavenly Father

Beloved Father! Our minds have all sorts of forms and figures, but please let your character appear in our daily lives, and please allow us to become beings of righteousness who are able to move when you move, and who are able to be still when you are still.

Since you know, Father, that we, who are weak, are kneeling down before you, and are going towards the heavenly castle, even if our bodies are blocking the mercy of our eternal Father by being trapped in secularity, please allow your external form to appear through our minds and bodies by our bodies' subjugating everything that is secular Please act, Father, to let us be able to feel through our minds and to sense through our bodies that the Will of that kind of providence, and the grace of the providence, and the love the providence are connected with us.

We feel that today also our minds are running towards absolute goodness, but our bodies are counterattacking our minds continuously in order to obtain secular things. Therefore, Father, please allow our minds and bodies to become one centered on your Will. We earnestly hope and desire, Father, that you will completely remove the footholds through which Satan can work in our minds and bodies, by breaking down the distance between your heart and our hearts.

Until today, heaven has sought to embrace and love our bodies which were centered on our minds, but we still have not been able to appear as complete object partners of beauty in the presence of the internal character and external form of the innermost heart of our Father. We know that this causes historical sorrow and lamentation. Since these are minds and bodies which cannot help but kneel down before you, and are minds and bodies that have been stained by sin, and are inadequate minds and bodies which are longing to be filled by your overflowing grace, Father, please, take hold of all of our minds and bodies now.

Please let us be able to appear as people who return joy to your internal character and respond to your mind. Now please allow us to be able to kneel down in front of your majesty and return glory to you by having the standard of hope for which you have longed for six thousand years, and we earnestly hope and desire, beloved Father, that you will allow this to become a time when we can reveal your internal character to you, so that you will be able to rest.

We know the fact that all the ideologies, doctrines, and the rights that people have, all these things will disappear. But we earnestly hope and desire, Father, that you will let us have in our minds power which comes and explodes anew, and eyes of resurrection through our minds and bodies having entered into the fundamental position which can exist eternally, and please let its cast aside our daily lives centered on ourselves, and please guide us to lead our daily lives centered on the cosmos. We earnestly hope and desire, beloved Father, that you will allow us to become able to experience and feel keenly your mind as our mind and your heart as our heart.

We have humbly prayed in the name of the Lord. Amen.
