Mayumi, my wife,
Who I relied on in all matters
Suddenly came down with an illness.
Not being able to meet in person,
My wife and I can only exchange words
On the phone.
Messages of encouragement for my wife
Arrive from many members.
Oh, how they touch my heart!
My wife and I are united as one
With the members of Meishu-sama—
That sank deep into my heart.
While in the hospital,
My wife voices out the prayers
Of World Church of Messiah devotedly,
Over and over again.
I am grateful that
God permits me to offer my prayers
To Him through words—
This is what my wife said.
To pray is to offer my whole being—
My wife came to this realization,
Shedding tears in joy.
I now know that
The words we use for prayers are immeasurably powerful—
This, my wife firmly asserts.
Remembering that I received the reviving breath,
Together with everyone and everything.
I set firmly in my heart that
You blessed us with a new beginning.
Allow me, O God, to serve You!
