The 2018 Autumn Hyojeong Cheongpyeong Great Works began at 6:20am on October 19th with opening prayer. A lot of members from around the world who are on their way to the victory of Vision 2020 gathered at the Jeongshim Won prayer hall to attend the first event of the Great Works. Members from all over the world honored the event with great enthusiasm.
Vice President Myong-kwan Lee was the MC at the opening prayer. The value of the opening prayer is that brothers and sisters can prepare their hearts, minds, and bodies for all of the activities of the Great Works. The following were thus the weekend’s central activities. The Gathering of Japanese Missionaries in Korea took place on the first day. About 4,000 Japanese members who have worked hard since they came to Korea attended True Parents at that meeting. The second afternoon was the 2018 Hyojeong Offering Ceremony for the Inheritance of Heavenly Fortune and the 2018 YSP Hyojeong International Peace Youth Music Contest, in attendance to True Parents, at the CheongShim Peace World Center. That evening, after coming back to the Cheongpyeong Heaven and Earth Training Center, the Tree of All Things Prayer was held, which is one of the most important programs of the Autumn Great Works. During the Tree of All Things Prayer Gi-seong Lee lit the candle given to him by True Parents; that light was passed to each participant, who prayed for heavenly fortune with their own holy candle. Heavenly Parent bestowed great blessings and grace on them personally, and on their family. After the opening holy song and remarks of the opening prayer, everyone sang the Cheon Il Guk anthem, bowed and recited the Family Pledge. Finally, the president of FFWPU for a Heavenly Korea, and Cheongpyeong Heaven and Earth Training Center, Rev. Gi-seong Lee read True Parents’ words:
“You will be able to be victorious if you harmoniously unite with True Parents in heart, body and mindset.
Cheongpyeong is the homeland of our faith. It’s the Original Garden. It is, therefore, my mission to establish a new culture,
And I need your cooperation. It is my plan to turn Cheongpyeong into the holy land for all humankind worldwide, within ten years.” (Understanding True Parents’ Cheongpyeong Providence II, p. 21, Dec. 12, 2015)
“Now there's hope for you. If you are in the position where you can actualize True Parents’ will, you will experience an amazing heavenly miracle. Now there’s nothing in front of you to be afraid of. If you are confident in the presence of True Mother, the only begotten daughter, then the spirit world and physical world will be with you always.” (True Parents’ address given at the Resolution Rally for the Hopeful March Forward of Honam Region)
After Vice President Myong-kwan Lee led us in song and praise with “Grace of the Holy Garden,” he said, “It’s time for everyone to gather their sincerity, heart and soul and offer their prayers to Heavenly Parent and True Parents with a loud voice.” He then led us in “Danshimga” (The song of devotion) and shouts of “Eog-Mansei” three times, reporting the start of the Great Works to Heavenly Parent and True Parents. All the people who attended the first program of this Great Works, the “Opening Prayer,” received great blessings.
