Why Our Churches Do Not Grow

Why the Joyous world that God promises has not occurred.

We do not understand our special prayer, the Joyous Service. God has given us this prayer to save all mankind.

  1. We realize that God is omnipresent; but where do we direct our prayers?
  2. What are we asking God to do with our special prayer?
  3. What conditions of the prayer is required before God accepts the prayer?
  4. When God delivers our prayer, what does one do?

We pray toward the Kanrodai, where mankind was created. This is where God compares our mind with the pure mind of the first parent of mankind.

We are asking God to sweep away evil (greed, arrogance, and self love) from those near us. God does this by entering people, and distinguishing their minds. If evil is present, he places illness on their bodies. God brings these people to us, and our churches.

For our prayers to be accepted by God, we must clear our minds of evil. We must be committed to truly saving others. This is why God distinguishes the prayer’s mind first. Without true sincerity, one would not be able to heal and teach these people when God sends them to our churches.

When our prayers are accepted and God sends these people to us, we heal them and teach them God’s truths. These people then sincerely perform the service (prayer) and this cycle continues until all mankind is purified in mind.

Our churches do not grow because we do not understand the purpose of our special prayer.
