Please Allow Our Minds To Long For Our Original Home

One of the prayers from the 12 volumes of Father’s prayers that have been published in Korean.
We did not know that a historical end was calling to us from afar, and we did not know that you had set us up high and were urging us along the path we have to go.
Father! Each time we went in ignorance onto a side path you guided us back to the path ahead. We feel once again how very much you have toiled guiding us until this point at the end of history today. Oh Father! Where do our minds want to dwell? And where do our bodies want to dwell? Since we have come to understand that the place where our minds and bodies should dwell is at the center of your original, deep love, Father, please encourage your children who have not been able to arrive at that point.
Without your love, Father, we can not rest, and without your love, we can not feel your heart. Therefore please let the waves of your love flow down into our lacking minds, and bring about in us the blessing of rebirth. We must long for that position until our eyes grow cold, and we must yearn for that position until our minds ache with the yearning. And furthermore in order to find that position, we will have to go through miserable struggles, and even if we are destroyed and collapse a thousand, ten thousand times, and experience the anguish of the vanquished, we know that it is our duty that we must rise up again and go forward fighting. Therefore, our Father, please personally direct our minds and bodies, and please do not allow us to become the vanquished in this battle. We have humbly prayed all these things in the name of the True Parents. Amen.
