Changes to Prayer Procedures

Since September 1999, blessed families have been able to pray in their own names, and since 2001, “prayer” has been replaced by “report.” Furthermore, on September 14, 2006, True Father said the following and proclaimed the word, “Aju” to conclude prayer.

. “Aju” means “my abode.” The ah in “aju” can be written with the Chinese character (我) that means “me.” The syllable “Ah!” is also the sound we make when in awe. “Ah!” is a sound that contains and expresses surprise and admiration. Thus it will release all the bitter sorrow of human history. You often hear, “Ah, this is good!” But do you ever hear, “Ah, this is bad”? When we say, “Ah!” we usually are referring to what is best. Now the second syllable, ju, can be written with either the Chinese character for “lord” (主) or the character that means “reside” (住). Therefore “aju” refers to the final position one assumes after becoming an owner. “Aju” also means “moving in;” thus it means, “Ah, I have now become an owner, and I need to move into my home!” “My home” means God’s master bedroom. When we are born, we are not immediately in God’s master bedroom. We first live in the womb of God’s wife. However, when we grow up, we come to say, “Aju, this is my home!” There is no greater aspiration than this. It means that my home has become a place founded on the realm of eternal oneness. It has become inseparable from the inner heart of God. Hence “my home” has two meanings: It is my home, and it is the home of God’s innermost heart.

When couples, such as pastors and their wives, join hands to offer benedictions, they may pray, “I report this (or bless this) in the name of (husband’s name) and (wife’s name), a central blessed family.” However, this is not an official instruction from the True Parents. Just as True Parents pray “in the name of True Parents,” the pastors (or a blessed families), who are substitutes of True Parents, may pray together as a couple; but in principle, it is proper to pray in the name of the individual.
