"I am.. Praying as earnestly as though to produce fire from damp wood, or to obtain water from parched ground" (WND-1,444) Wholehearted prayer to the Gohonzon enables us to break through all of our obstacles and limitations.

"Please create waves of Victory from your local areas that will ripple out to encompass the entire world." 

How many of us are chanting such Strong Focused Daimoku as to obtain water from parched ground or produce fire from damp firewood? We Must Win! We Must Awaken the Myo that is our life! We owe it to ourselves, the people in our lives and to Kosen Rufu to live our Best Lives the Lives that are True to ourselves! Nam Myoho Renge Kyo!

How moving! Tonight I will indeed pray as inspired by this quote from above:
["I am.. Praying as earnestly as though to produce fire from damp wood, or to obtain water from parched ground" (WND-1,444) Wholehearted prayer to the Gohonzon enables us to break through all of our obstacles and limitations.]
