Updated English Prayer Book Now Available !


The original English Prayer Book was first published in 1989, but many Japanese prayers were translated and added over the past two decades. Lately, there were discussions about the sentiment of the prayers being lost in translation as well as the number of loose inserts put into the book.
In response to these concerns, a committee was formed in 2007 to revise and update the English Prayer Book and now their task is complete.
The main changes are:
? New translations of Konkokyo keywords were adopted.
? "Refreshed" Tenchi Kakitsuke, In Praise of Konko Daijin, Heaven and Earth Prayer, Newly Departed Soul Prayer, Before & After Meal Prayers, and Peace Prayer were added.
? Three songs ? "A Shining, Shimmering Light," "A World of Prayer," and "A New Life, A New Beginning" ? were added along with translations and scores.
