A Special Prayer

Many religions have primary prayer. We also have a special prayer

Evil sweeping, save them please. Universal Saving God.

Evil refers to arrogance, greed, and self love

Them refers to the people that are not familiar with our teaching. The following verse from the Tip of the Writing Brush alludes to this:

This Service, from where do you think they will come from?

From the high places they will come spiritedly. 2-4

The service is directed to benefit people that do not know the teachings. We are praying not for ourselves to be saved, but for God to help eliminate greed, evil, and arrogance from the  minds of others. When this happens, they become spirited and happy. This unselfish prayer is appropriate to our religion where salvation comes from saving others.
