Gems for Young Single Adults
Prayer and Gratitude

"I offer a plea that each of us will seek to live closer to the Lord and to commune with Him more frequently and with increased faith.

"Fathers and mothers, pray over your children. Pray that they may be shielded from the evils of the world. Pray that they may grow in faith and knowledge. Pray that they may be directed toward lives that will be profitable and good. Husbands, pray for your wives. Express unto the Lord your gratitude for them and plead with Him in their behalf. Wives, pray for your husbands. Many of them walk a very difficult road with countless problems and great perplexities. Plead with the Almighty that they may be guided, blessed, protected, inspired in their righteous endeavors. . . .

"Pray for wisdom and understanding as you walk the difficult paths of your lives. If you are determined to do foolish and imprudent things, I think the Lord will not prevent you. But if you seek His wisdom and follow the counsel of the impressions that come to you, I am confident that you will be blessed."

Topics: Faith, family, peace, prayer, gratitude

(Gordon B. Hinckley, "Benediction," Ensign, May 2003, 99-100)

About This Site

This is an archive of LDS quotes. Many are archived from the Daily Gems and others are from my own study. Those from my own study will start with "My ... " (Ex. My Quotes, My BofM) and include scriptures I like and quotes from the prophets and will usually have my commentary as well. If you have a quote that you would like posted on this site then send me an email with the quote. I would love for this to be a large database of quotes that all who would like can come and feast upon the words of the Prophets.
