The Prayer to Save All Mankind

In our religion everyone is a child of God. We are all brothers and sisters. There is no high or low among God’s children. Male and female are equal in the eyes of God. The rich and the poor are at the same level. Yet in this world, some believe that they are superior to others because of who they are or what they possess. There are people who take advantage of others. There are people who cause others to suffer, only thinking about themselves.

How do we level the ground, and make people realize that we are all God’s children? In the Heaven’s Truth religion, we have a unique prayer asking God to bring people to us so that we can teach them that everyone is equal in the eyes of God. But for this prayer to be effective, we must eliminate greed, arrogance, and self-love from our own minds. The following directions were given to the early followers of the church concerning how to level the ground, or make people realize that we are all equal in the eyes of God.

Do you want to open the portal to level the ground, or do you want to close the portal to level the ground? (Osashizu)

Interpretation:

Do you want God to help make people understand that we are brothers and sisters or do you want God not to help? Of course the latter path will take a long time for people to realize God’s intention of a joyous world and will prolong the unnecessary sufferings in the world.

With this special prayer, God has given us the ability to bring others to understand God’s intention for a joyous life for everyone. When these people understand God’s intentions, they will then pray sincerely for others. This process will continue to bring new people until the whole world will be praying for the joyous life among all mankind. We need to spread the prayer that will save all mankind.
