Dear God, we believe in the Origin, that you created mankind to live a joyous life. But evils like greed, arrogance, and self-love have become widespread, causing sufferings in this world. Today we pray to you, to help sweep these evils from the minds of mankind; and we also pray to you, asking your help to spread the truth that will bring peace to the world. Believing in the Origin and with your special prayer to save all mankind, we pray now for your blessings of new members.
