Family Federation is a ministry whose roots go back to Easter morning 1936. While praying, a young man named Sun Myung Moon had a personal encounter with Jesus, who called him to complete the work left undone at the time of the crucifixion. In the years that followed, which were filled with intense prayer and study of the Bible, the meaning of Jesus’ words was revealed to Sun Myung Moon through what would later become the Divine Principle.
Rev. Moon describes his encounter with Jesus, and subsequent search for a new expression of truth in his autobiography, As a Peace-Loving Global Citizen”
“The Word of God I was hearing in church, however, was not sufficient by itself to give me the clear answers I was seeking. To relieve the frustrations in my heart, I naturally began to immerse myself in prayer.
“Who am I? Where did I come from? What is the purpose of life? What happens to people when they die? Is there a world of the eternal soul? Does God really exist? Is God really all-powerful? If He is, why does He just stand by and watch the sorrows of the world?
“My heart was filled with these serious and fundamental questions. No one could easily answer them for me, so my only option was to pray. Prayer helped me to find solace. Whenever I laid out the anguishing problems in my heart to God, all my suffering and sorrow vanished and my heart felt at ease. I began spending more and more time in prayer, to the point that, eventually, I began praying through the night all the time. As a result, I had a rare and precious experience in which God answered my prayers. That day will always remain as the most cherished memory of my life—a day I can never forget.“
