Words of Light*
God is Light,
And where there is Light, peace, happiness and joy abound.
In Darkness, conflict, poverty and disease pervade.
For those who seek Light and prosperity, come!
Come to the Light and call on the name of Messiah!
You, then, will be saved.
Words of Prayer
God, I acknowledge that You are alive.
Within me, You are alive.
I thank You for nurturing me to be newly born as Your child.
May this blessing be shared with all.
In the name of Messiah, which is one with Meishu-sama,
I surrender myself to You.
Please use me as You wish.
World Church of Messiah
Our Father in heaven,
Hallowed be your name,
Your kingdom come,
Your will be done,
On earth as in heaven.
Give us today our daily bread.
Forgive us our sins
As we forgive those who sin against us.
Save us from the time of trial
And deliver us from evil.
For the authority, the glory, and the blessing
Are forever yours, God,
You, who are one with the name of Messiah.
We, the followers of Meishu-sama, aim to be born anew as children of God, following the footsteps of Meishu-sama, who attained the status of a Messiah, a child of God.
All of us became the children of our physical parents by way of physical birth. Now, we believe that we must be newly born, once more, as the children of God, recognizing that our true Parent is the Eternal and Living God.
Just as our physical parents named us at our birth, God granted us a name when He bore us in heaven.
We believe that this name is Messiah and that all humans are born on earth to become God’s children, Messiahs.
In order to be accepted by God as His children, we believe that we need to make a conscious effort to direct our hearts to God in our daily life.
We praise and glorify God, acknowledge Him as the Creator and attribute every manifestation in our life to God.
We believe that these efforts will gradually make us grow to become who we must be, that is, children of God – Messiahs.
