God’s Day Midnight Prayer


God’s Day Midnight Prayer
January 1, 2009

Version 1:

We have left behind us the jubilee years, the seventh and eighth years of Cheon Il Guk in the sacred reign of peace, and ushered in New Year’s Day 2009 for Cheon Il Guk.

This is the moment when our Heavenly Father, the king of cosmic peace, and the True Parents, who are His substantial counterparts, are united to begin anew the first day of 2009. On this first morning of the New Year, beginning the first day of the ninth year, and watched by the entire universe united in accord with the new resolution, True Parents, who are standing here at the center of heaven and earth as representatives of everything, declare absolute sexual ethics, true love, true life and the victorious right of true lineage, in the realm of the Cosmic Sabbath of the Parents of Heaven and Earth’ as this year’s motto and also proclaim the new era of the victorious authority as we make a new beginning. Please receive this day’s motto, declared in the name of True Parents, who are united with God, the great king of all created things.

This beginning, made on this day, on earth, as we usher in a new heaven and earth, is in line with Your will to see the renewal of True Parents’ realm, perfected physically and spiritually, internally and externally, in the garden of the original ideal as created by God before the Fall, the one subject-partner of internal and external oneness in body, mind and ideology. However, Eve’s error, which was neither desired nor intended, the fallen act by which the lineage was violated, was committed, she succumbed to Satan’s temptation. God could therefore not exist in the world of the ideal he envisaged at the Creation; instead Satan seized authority over the original ideal of creation and over all humankind.

Thus, Satan came to occupy the position of the parent in God’s stead and brought into this world the lineage of the satanic world, centered on flesh and blood. You have had to go through a history of grief and sorrow and pass through the age of the fallen Adam, and the ages of Jesus and of the Returning Lord — that is, the Old Testament, New Testament and Completed Testament Ages — with the heartfelt desire to finally usher in and firmly establish the era of the realm of the heart of the fourth Adam. Now, on this day and at this hour, the ninth year of Cheon Il Guk begins.

Standing in the position of the parents who have established the new, Abel-type UN and deep brotherly love, through which the completion of the new providential history can be declared, and centering on this new, ninth year [of Cheon Il Guk], we have passed through and welcomed the era of the victorious sovereignty of the new, completely restored lineage that will pass through the first stage (directed vertically) and the second stage (directed horizontally) and the third stage consisting of the ninth, tenth, eleventh and twelfth years of the new millennium, by which we can go beyond the number eleven — We begin a new day in the ninth year of Cheon II Guk for the ideal of God’s absolute love, so at this time as we begin the era of the victorious sovereignty of His all-transcendence, all-immanence, full authority and omnipotence for the fulfillment of Your aims on a victorious foundation, we hope and pray that You will be at the center of this, so that only Your victorious sovereignty can preside over us in this world of the new, eternal heaven-and-earth that has been declared, been taken responsibility for, and begun on this day.

At this time and on the foundation of a new beginning of the realm of the Abel UN, which is based on the authority of the liberation of God, all things in the universe can be claimed centering on True Parents, and standing on the victorious sovereignty of the perfected, original ideal of the oneness of body and mind, the coronation of God as the king of kings, who is the center of heaven-and-earth, and the victorious king of kings, will be performed on January 31, the day marking True Father’s ninetieth birthday.

On this basis, please allow us to fulfill our wish to perform the re-enthronement of the era of God’s absolute authority in the place of the victorious king, the new representative of heaven-and-earth. We pray you will also permit us this victory to inherit the eternal world of the new, victorious heaven-and-earth for generations to come and go forward as True Parents announce the motto for the sake of the settlement of noon at this time.

All created beings in the universe will now, in the era of God’s liberated, full and absolute authority, stand on the victorious foundation of the oneness of heart, one outlook and one clan in absolute faith, absolute love and absolute obedience, and only God’s eternal, authoritative and victorious sovereignty will continue forevermore, into the new millennium when heaven and earth will be converted and developed into the liberated and fully freed kingdom of heaven. All this I declare and report as the representative of the new day in the name of True Parents, so please receive our prayer.

As the central figure of the eternal victory of the world’s countless future generations, I declare that all things in the universe will proceed to the autonomous, liberated and completely freed kingdom of heaven, which is a place of the life of service, oneness and love. I declare this on True Parents’ internal and external victorious sovereignty and on the victorious supremacy achieved through the establishment of absolute sexual ethics. Please receive this, therefore, and take responsibility for it, and march forward to become the owner of the throne of victory and glory.

All this I report and declare earnestly in True Parents names. Aiu! Aiu! Aiu!

Version 2:

Brief summary of Father’s God’s Day Midnight Prayer

Heavenly Father, last year we gave the motto that the 7th and 8th years of jubilee would be combined. Now True Parents and God are coming together as one on this new True God’s Day. As we bring in this new year, spirit world, heaven and earth are here united with us. We are all prepared to make a new beginning in 2009. True Parents stand before this created world as God’s representative to declare the realm of True Parents, and the victory of true love, true life, and true lineage. We will now proclaim a new era in which God and True Parents are one, and we will proclaim a new motto. We sincerely pray that you will accept this motto and that we can completely unite with you in heart and mind.

Because of Eve’s mistake, Satan took God’s rights and authority and stained the lineage of heaven. From Adam to Jesus to the Old Testament, New Testament, and Completed Testament ages and now into the realm of the fourth Adam, all has been reclaimed and restored. Your authority and lineage have been established.

Now the time has come to proclaim the victorious conclusion of this providence. All of the bitter sorrow through which you accomplished this victory leads us into the ninth year of Cheon Il Guk, the tenth, eleventh, twelfth years in which we can claim the victorious right of heaven. We have now begun this new year and it’s our hope and prayer that all that you desire can be accomplished, and that your glory, omnipotence and power will shine, and all creation and humanity with true love can come under you and you alone.

Now we will begin anew to advance the Abel UN and to allow you to be recognized as the king of all kings. This will be a new era of your absolute true love.
