Rev. Hyung Jin Moon’s Prayer

February 15, 2010

Father, we thank You so much for this day that You have blessed upon us. As we now come into Your presence, Father, we know that You have planned for Your blessed central families, Your children, just like Moses who had to walk through the wilderness course, and the leadership that was changed to Joshua, moving into Canaan, Father, in the age of settlement. But Father, we know, looking at the providential history, that Your children became faithless in Canaan, that they were not able to substantiate the gathering ground for Your community.

But Father, at this time True Father has told us, even before we came to HQ Church, of this important mission. Father, we know that we will have to substantialize this, Father, to be able to have the central place in this land of Canaan, so that our families can gather, Father, that our families can grow in their lives of faith, in their lives in abundance physically and spiritually.

Father, we pray that You may ordain this, that Father, You may give us the strength that we will need to fight through the many battles that are up against us. Father, we pray that You may fill us with a strong faith that can move through the challenges, the archangels, the obstacles that will come into our way.

But Father, let us always have compassion, and let us know that as we move and focus not on the benefit of the leaders but the benefit of the members, Your children, Father, we know that Your house will be a house of blessing, that Your children will be able to shine, that our church will move into a new history and a new age that we will be able to witness.

Father, thank You so much for this day. We pray that You may pour Your abundance and blessing upon each and everyone of these families today, and we pray that each one of the family members around this world may be, Father, consoled, may recognize that, as Father has asked us to step into leadership, we are focusing not on the benefit of the leadership but focusing on letting our blessed families shine, allowing them to move closer to True Parents, allowing them to truly live a blessed life.

We believe that if we do that as a church, as a family, Father, we will be able to transcend boundaries and we will be able to work with other organizations, Father, religions that can help establish Your ideal Peace Kingdom on this earth. Thank You so much, Father, for this blessing that You have blessed upon us, and Father, let us move with confidence into this new age where we can now represent our church and all that it represents for the rest of history, Father. Thank You so much. We pray these things with an everlasting love and gratitude from the depths of our hearts,

In our names, Aju!

Rev. Hyung Jin Moon’s Prayer

February 8, 2010
Heavenly Father, thank You so much. Father we thank You for this day that we can come together once again, that we have the freedom to live, to practice and worship You in this incredible world. Father, we thank You so much for the democratic world which was prepared by the American forefathers, guided by Your hand. Father, we thank You so much, because democracy is truly freeing people, allowing us to experience our faith without persecution.  And we pray that those ideals may come to pass, that they may come true in all democratic countries.
Father, we pray for our brothers and sisters, particularly in Japan, who for 43 years have endured so much persecution, illegal kidnappings and crimes against human rights, because of their faith, and their religion.  Father, we pray that You may console those hearts today. We want to pray for those persecutors, we want to pray like Jesus prayed, for those persecutors. We pray that they may have forgiveness and that they may repent of their ways. We pray that we may all be delivered into Your hand and Your love and we want to pray particularly for our brothers and sisters who have suffered these atrocities.
Father, we want to pray for those brothers and sisters who are the true heroes of our faith, who have endured intense suffering but  still hold strong with love, with conviction and with faith. Father, we thank You so much for them, because without them we would be so unable to see how blessed we can be.  We pray for them today, we pray that You have Your hand with them today, and that You may protect them today. We pray that Unificationists all around the world may be proud of their faith; that we may understand our right to practice our religion, our right to be proud of our faith, proud of True Parents; that we may understand our right to declare that they are the Lord, that they are the Messiah.
Father, we thank You so much, and we want to come together as a community, we want to offer grace to You and offer thanks.  We want to ask You to come down and be in our lives, Father, to give us courage and strength to stand up in the face of persecution with peace, to stand up in the face of injustice with truth and stand up in the face of hatred with true love.  Thank You so much.  We pray, Father, that You may be with us today and as we move forward.  Please guide us and give us Your spirit.  Thank You so much.  We pray all these things in our own names, as Blessed Central families we pray.  Aju, Aju.
Sermon: Fearless True Love / September 26, 2009

Rev. Hyung Jin Moon’s Prayer

February 4, 2010

 

Heavenly Father,thank you so much for this day, Father. We are in Your presence, and Father, we want to recognize today that a family is not only together and stands together in times of feast and good times; but Father, a true family learns how to stick together and stand for one another and defend one another in times of crisis, in times of persecution. Father, we pray that today we may mature to that level. 
 
Father, call in us the heart that is not only centered on our own need.  Father, let us expand to the needs of those who have suffered so much for us.  Father, our Japanese movement has sacrificed and has held the entire financial responsibility to fund every church in America, every church in Korea, every church in Lithuania, every church in Africa. They have shouldered that burden for the last 30 years. They have paid for our church buildings; they have paid for our ceremonies and our events. And Father, we are indebted.  They have sacrificed the most, and they are our saints.
 
Father, we may feel that we have done a lot; but You know how much Your Japanese sons and daughters have suffered!  Those who truly know (the truth), do know how much they have suffered for the sake of all our communities around the world.  Father, we want to pray for them today and particularly for those who have been illegally abducted, Father, in a democratic state, against their will. Father, they have been not only persecuted but tortured, and imprisoned!  Some of our sisters, Father — we don’t even want to repeat what happened to them! Father, these grave misdoings and sins are against Your people, Father!
 
We pray for Your forgiveness because, Father, this is truly, truly painful for You to see.  Father, we want to be here together for them; we want to pray for them today. And we don’t want to just pray – we want to step out in action, for it is said in the Scripture that he who hears the words and puts them into practice is the one who builds a house on a rock. Let us hear these words, Father. Let us put into practice our faith. Let us share it and declare it, so that nobody can take it away from us or from our brothers and sisters in Japan, or in Africa or in Russia or anywhere else.
 
Father, let us protect our faith; it is time for us to stand up for one another.  Father, we want to do that. We are mature, we are adults, Father. Father, we know that we want to stand up for them, and give us the courage to do so, to stand up. Father, we pray that You may encourage the brothers and sisters from Japan who see this service. We pray that they may be encouraged today. Encourage them. They truly need it. We love them so much. We love You. We are pouring our hearts out to You, and we thank You.  Father, we thank You once again for being with us at this time, and we will do our 5%. Thank You so much.
 
We pray all these things in our names as central blessed families and proud Unificationists. We pray this in the name of True Parents. Aju! Aju! Aju!

Sermon: Walking The Way/September 19, 2009


Rev. Hyung Moon’s Prayer:

January 27, 2010

Heavenly Father, thank you so much. Father we thank you this day because you are the rock upon which we are saved, and, Father, because of your deaths and resurrections, because of that incredible power and grace, we have a new resurrection inside of us.
Father, our unification movement is finally understanding why we are completing the mission of Jesus, why we stand in a providential history, why we are not a young movement, but why we are moving with 5000 years of your providence.

Father, let us get inside of us today. Let us realize that we are walking in the divine destiny with your divine movement, with your blessing. Father, let us have confidence in ourselves, and let us know that it is not by our own doing that good things will be received and good things will come to pass, but by us relying on the love that you have shed upon us and by being grateful for it. We pray that through your love we may be made new and made reborn.

Father, thank you so much for this day. We want to be able to be reborn today in our spirits. Our True Father is crying out to us today that united we stand and divided we fall. Our True Parents are crying out to the world today. Let us be one with them, one in heart and spirit. Let us center ourselves, our prayers, our lives, and our meditation on the victory of true love and move with that providence, move together with that divine destiny, and, Father, let us bring about the change in the world, which is our destiny.

Father, we thank you so much. We want to inherit this today. We hope that you can hold our hands today. We pray that we may be able to receive new life through this realization. Thank you for the everlasting life. We offer our thanks to you for the True Parents whom you called and chose to pay the indemnity for the sins accumulated from the early ancestors, and thank you for that grace. Because of this grace we are entering into the Kingdom. Let us be the best we can be. Father, let us be godly in our behavior, in our thoughts, in our minds. Come into our lives, come into our hearts, make us new, make us reborn. We thank you so much. We pray all this in our names as central blessed families. We pray this in the name of True Parents together as brothers and sisters in true love. Aju!

Sermon:Living For The Lord / September 12, 2009


Rev. Hyung Jin Moon’s Prayer

January 19, 2010

Heavenly Father, thank You so much for these brothers and sisters. This is our family. Today we have brothers and sisters from Hong Kong. I pray that they may live with Your anointment, that they can live with Your spirit. Father we have brothers and sisters from New York, from Africa, from Taiwan, from Singapore, from the Philippines. Father, this is our amazing Unification Family. Your true love has brought together this diverse group so that we may come together in Your amazing love. 

Father, we know that You have portrayed and given us the most amazing kind of love that we could have known, Father, a love that can transcend death, go over the grave, a love that can be victorious over sorrow, over tears, Father, that can change our tears into tears of joy. Father, You gave us a new life, a new birth,  resurrection. Father You have shown us that the power of Your true love is greater than any other force in the world. No torture, no prison, no hell can stop the power of Your love, of Your amazing grace, of Your unending true love.
 
Father we want to touch the center of the universe, the center of the cosmos which we know is Your heart, pulsing with true love. We know that True Parents have come before us. They have been physically tortured. They have gone to the prisons, to the death camp for us and Father they have gone in the spirit to take our place so that we would not have to suffer in the lower realm, so that we would be freed, so we would come directly come to the eighth stage, Father, that we may walk hand in hand with them into these incredible gates Father, the gates that You open for Your children. 

Father, we pray that You can be with our brothers and sisters today, Father we pray that You may come down and descend upon them, that we may have a rebirth experience, that we may resurrect in this sanctuary, Father. We pray that we can have new life in this sanctuary today, Father. All the hope and the life that we have been dreaming away (lost) in our lives, we pray that they may be resurrected, Father, in Your incredible glory. Father, we pray that we may understand that it is not about US, let us understand that it is about YOUR glory, Your victory Father. Let us offer ourselves so that You move us in an almighty way, an almighty way Father, that You will bring us into the next level in our lives, the next level in our family. Father,  we pray that we may see that because of a certain problem in our lives that is always stealing our hopes, we are getting stronger, we are getting more victorious and  be healed inside and made whole in the bosom of the Lord. Thank You so much! 

We want to pray to You today as an offering. We want to sacrifice our hearts just like True Parents did in the Seven Deaths and Resurrections. We want to offer this as an altar call offering to You, Father, as Your children coming together in love and in unity, in devotion, in gratitude and in hope Father. We want to leave this up to You and we want to give You strength, we want to give You more joy today. 

Thank You so much for blessing the Unification Church, Father. Thank You so much for anointing the Unification movement, anointing the footsteps of all the members in the world. We pray that wherever they may be, their feet and their footsteps can be anointed, that their lives may shine, that they may show the light of God into this land of darkness. Please Father, we pray that we may be able to offer this today, we pray that You may receive this heart today, Father. We thank You so much, we feel Your presence today as we lift our hands and close our eyes. As we touch Your face, we know You are reaching down to our hearts and resurrecting the dreams that have been stolen by the enemy. We know that You are reaching to our hearts and resurrecting the potential that we gave up, the projects that we gave up. We pray that we may now resurrect those dreams and those desires and that they may be used for Your glory Father. Thank You so much. 

We pray that our brothers and sisters may return to Hong Kong, to Singapore, to Malaysia, to the U.S., all over the world and that Your light, the new dawning of true love, can touch this world in a magnificent and mighty way. We pray that we may be able to move and shake this world with the power of the Principle and the power of  the true love that is behind the Seven Deaths and Resurrections, Father! Thank You so much. Please, Father be with these brothers and sisters today and we want to offer all these things because united we stand and divided we fall. We thank You so much and offer all this to You in Your glory and for Your victory. In the name of True Parents we pray and in the name of central blessed families we pray. Aju!

Sermon: Miracles of Faith / August 15,2009


Rev. Hyung Jin Nim’s Prayer

January 15, 2010

Heavenly Father, thank You so much for his day. Father, we want to celebrate on this day, this one year anniversary of the incredible substantial resurrection day. Father, we didn’t know what You have done for us. We followed True Parents, but we doubted them and we lost faith many times. Father, we couldn’t understand why their love was so great. Father, we talked and lectured about it, explained it, but we couldn’t feel what kind of love that True Love was. Father, You have given us that incredible True Love.

Father, True Parents in their life course have been imprisoned for the sake of their nation, they have been tortured in the prisons. They have bled for us, they have been beaten, their bones have been shattered, but Father, their spirit has descended to the most fearful realms of the spirit world so that we all may be free. Father, we stand on the incredible victory of that True Love. Not once, but seven times, for the sake of the individual all the way up to the cosmos and spirit world.

We want to give You an incredible “Thank you” today for You have given us that True Love, showed it in the life of True Parents. Father, that’s a great victory, that they have inherited Your parental heart which is True Love. Father, let’s understand what this True Love is, what kind of sacrifice this parental heart will do. Father, let us inherit that True Love. Let us become this kind of children so that Your victory may not be in vain.

Father, we want to give You all the glory today, we know now why we call You the King of Kings, we know now why we call True Parents our lord and our savior. We now know why they’ve paid the price for our own misdoings and sins, so that we could come to You, that our families could come to You and our tribes, our nations, and our spirits could come to You. Father, those seven deaths and resurrections are the greatest victory that You have shown to mankind.

Let us understand that incredible True Love, and let us be the inheritors of that and manifest that in this world, in whatever we do. Father, we want to give You one more thanks because You brought us where we are, You brought us up to this point when we could have given up and been defeated so many times. But You led us here, You guided us and You are faithful. Father, let us renew ourselves to You, and let us offer ourselves to You just as You have done with the lives of True Parents, for the sake of this world and for our own spirits.

We thank You so much and Father, please bless each and everyone of our unificationists worldwide. We pray that they may all live in that incredible victory that You have prepared for them. Father, we pray that we may walk with confidence, and we may teach with confidence and live with confidence, knowing that the True Love that You have shown to our True Parents, the parental love that will repeat these sacrifices for its children, is the highest type of love that the world has ever known.

Let us inherit that, let our Unificationists around the world inherit that and become the great victors of True Love, to make this world into what You have always wished for it to become, the great nation of Cheon Il Guk. Your Kingdom come, Your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven! Father, we pray with our hearts, with our minds, with our spirits this day. We want to give the greatest praise and the greatest thanksgiving in gratitude and in humility. We pray in our own names, as blessed central families. Aju!
