Directions from True Parents

May the blessing of the Parents of Heaven and Earth be with all of you
working hard for the victory of the 400 Million Couples Blessing.
On September 14, at 7:45a.m.(in New York) True Parents gave directions as
outlined below. I am thus informing you of the changes in the content to be
used when concluding a prayer, and a summary of True Father's words regarding
this. Leaders are requested to implement this change in their nations.
- Changes in the content with which a prayer is concluded:
- In a Blessed Family (1st generation and 2nd generation)
- When the husband prays: "I pray in the name of the husband OOO
[husband's name] of OOO's [husband's name] family, which is a blessed family
that has inherited True Parents' realm of victory through the blessing. Amen"
- When the wife prays: "I pray in the name of the wife OOO [wife's name]
of OOO's [husband's name] family, which is a blessed family that has
inherited True Parents' realm of victory through the blessing. Amen"
- When the children pray: "I pray in the name of son/daughter OOO [son
or daughter's name], of OOO's [the father's name] family, which is a blessed
family that has inherited True Parents' realm of victory through the
- When praying in public: "I pray in the name of OOOO (position of
person praying) OOOO (name of person praying) who has inherited True Parents'
realm of victory through the blessing. Amen" (N.B. In case of Regional
Leader: I pray in the name of OOO, regional leader of OOO [name of place])
- Those Who Are Not Blessed
Pray in the same manner as before:
"I pray in the holy names of True Parents. Amen"
- Summary of True Father's Words on the Change of Content for Concluding
- It is a conclusion to the victorious contents of 9.9 Jeol and 3.10 Jeol
which True Parents declared according to the progress of the providence.
- The meaning of praying in the name of individuals is recognizing one's
responsibility as 'the substantial being having responsibility for the
contents of the prayer'.
- From now on a prayer must be a 'report' taking responsibility for results
(of missions given ) and for results of activities undertaken before God,
rather than an earnest request (such as requesting help for something). In
other words, giving a daily report of the results of daily life.
- This is the conclusion of heavenly fortune that has followed from the
celebrations of 9.9 Jeol and 3.10 Jeol. Through 3.10 Jeol, 4000 years of
history have been indemnified.
- True Father directed this to be proclaimed and implemented throughout the
world, at 7:45a.m. on September 14, 1999 (New York time).
True Father gave a speech on September 27, 1959 (from Volume 7 of
the collected sermons) entitled Church
Members Who Will Be Living in God's Family, in which he said:
The time will come when we pray in our own names. That day is the day of hope.
