Prayer to Save All Mankind

Why do most of our prayers fail? Something to ponder about.

The basics of prayer from the Tip of the Writing Brush

Remove evil from one’s mind before prayer. Evils can be called sins by traditional religions. In the Heaven’s Truth Religion, evils are called dusts. These dusts are arrogance, greed, self-love, miserliness, covetousness, anger, hate, and grudge bearing. Prayers without sincerity are said to be not accepted by God.

Pray for others. In the Heaven’s Truth Religion we have a prayer called the Joyous Service, asking God to save all mankind. Prayers concerning one self or immediate family are not necessary since God sees our true mind. It is said that when we pray for the salvation of others, we are also saved.

In summary, pray for the salvation of others with a pure mind. Why do we want everyone to be saved? It is said that when all mankind is saved, one will experience true joy.
