Prayer of Johrei
God of boundless love, reverently we offer our prayer.
To our teacher you revealed that the time of judgment is near.
In repentance, we remember our sinful acts and ask your forgiveness.
You have made known your will for us, to build on earth your paradise, free from sickness, poverty, and strife.
You revealed to our teacher your command: that we are to build a world of perfect truth, goodness, and beauty, where your will reigns supreme.
In your forgiveness you gave us your grace through the divine light of Johrei to heal the sick and save their lives.
Through the gift of Johrei you revealed to our teacher the path of righteousness for humankind.
For our betrayal of your love for us, for the untold sins we and our forebears have committed through all the ages, we have penitent and humble hearts in acknowledging our wrongdoing.
God of infinite mercy, we beg your forgiveness of our sins and pray that our souls may be purified.
May we, by your grace, be blessed with purity and strength to fulfill our mission.
May we build earthly paradise, and under your protection achieve ultimate union with you.
O God, Lord of the universe, hear our prayer for your blessings and protection.
And if it pleases you, grant peace and happiness to our souls.
