Collecting Prayers

My favorite part of Church was the prayers. I still look forward to discovering those I can find with my LDS personal study. 

   

I call it my hobby of Collecting Prayers.    

Which is an extension of how I pray; I learned in Primary in Green River, Wyoming (about 1956) to look toward the throne of God when I pray, with and then beyond the concourses of angels praying and singing praise to Him. 

   

D&C56: 14 To others it is given to abelieve on their words, that they also might have eternal life if they continue faithful.

I like to capture them occasionally onto my iPhone Lockscreen wallpaper and get “try again” to come up.

We Don’t Have to Be the Same to Be Together | LDS.org Blog

As Jesus taught us through His associations and interactions, you don’t have to resemble others to respect them and to show loving kindness. In this ever-increasingly divided world in which we live, where “interest groups, political camps, cultural factions and religious organizations are advancing their own vision of good,” differences will persist. It’s just life. But as followers of Jesus Christ, if we are to be the “light of the world,” a beacon of goodness, we need to do as the gospel of Jesus Christ teaches us. We need to love, be kind, avoid contention, be patient, reserve judgment for God, and forgive—over and over again.

In this increasingly divided world in which we live, differences will persist. But as followers of Jesus Christ, we need to love, reserve judgment, and forgive.

Heaven’s Hallelujah

Heaven's Hallelujah

– Heaven's Hallelujah Video Release – A Christ-centered version of the Leonard Cohen classic "Hallelujah". Original arrangement by Garth Smith featuring the vocal talent of Lauren Sullivan with lyrics by Hailey Isaacson Buehler and Dennis Isaacson. Background vocals are provided by Becky Willard. Videographer is Dan Williams. While Cohen's original "Hallelujah" is extremely popular and loved by millions, it isn't always appropriate to be sung in a religious setting due to its darker lyrics. "Heaven's Hallelujah" starts with Cohen's "Broken Hallelujah" as we deal with the trials and setbacks of this life. The song then elevates the listener to a "Hopeful Hallelujah" as we realize that Christ brings us a higher purpose to life. As we recognize that Christ's atonement will raise us from the grave, the song progresses to a "Praiseful Hallelujah". The song then reaches the climax with an eternal expression of "Endless Hallelujah" in the presence of the Savior as we cross to the other side and experience the infinite love of Christ for us.

The 15 best quotes from Martin Luther King’s ‘I Have a Dream’ speech | Deseret News

I was a Junior when my friend – I took him personally – Died April 4, 1968 (aged 39). A fellow Youth was sent from a spontaneous gathering of black leaders and youth in my home town to warn me that more actions against the black may be about to follow. I started the roll-out to account for all the youth, years earlier we had created Youth Missionary Groups to stop the suicide chains. We fasted together Wednesday mornings. No youth comited suicide as a trigger of his death. 

On Aug. 28, 1963, the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. delivered his “I Have a Dream” speech from the steps of the Lincoln Memorial. This historic

We Follow Jesus Christ – Quentin L. Cook

https://www.lds.org/general-conference/2010/04/we-follow-jesus-christ?lang=eng

As we listen to the messages of this conference, we will be touched in our hearts and make resolutions and commitments to do better. But on Monday morning we will return to work, school, neighborhoods, and to a world that in many cases is in turmoil. Many in this world are afraid and angry with one another. While we understand these feelings, we need to be civil in our discourse and respectful in our interactions. This is especially true when we disagree. The Savior taught us to love even our enemies.13 The vast majority of our members heed this counsel. Yet there are some who feel that venting their personal anger or deeply held opinions is more important than conducting themselves as Jesus Christ lived and taught. I invite each one of us individually to recognize that how we disagree is a real measure of who we are and whether we truly follow the Savior. It is appropriate to disagree, but it is not appropriate to be disagreeable. Violence and vandalism are not the answer to our disagreements. If we show love and respect even in adverse circumstances, we become more like Christ.

Answer to today’s prayer

   
“Come, Follow Me” by Practicing Christian Love and Service
http://www.lds.org/general-conference/2016/10/come-follow-me-by-practicing-christian-love-and-service?lang=eng

    

There is another special way disciples show their love for the Savior. Today I pay tribute to all who serve the Lord as caregivers. How the Lord loves you! In your quiet, unheralded service, you are following Him who promised, “Thy Father who seeth in secret, himself shall reward thee openly.”14

I think of my neighbor whose wife was afflicted with Alzheimer’s disease. Every Sunday he would help her dress for Church meetings, comb her hair, apply her makeup, even put on her earrings. In rendering this service, he was an example to every man and woman in our ward—in fact, for the world. One day his wife said to him, “I just want to see my husband again and be with him.”

He answered, “I am your husband.”

And she sweetly replied, “Oh, good!”

I cannot speak of giving care without acknowledging the special caregiver in my life—the Savior’s special disciple to me—my eternal companion, Mary. She has given all in compassionate nurturing and love. Her hands reflect His gentle, sustaining touch. I would not be here without her. And with her, I will be able to endure to the end and be with her in eternal life.

Viewmont High School, in my Mormon home town, Bountiful, Utah:

From my High School yearbook, Viewmont 1969.
We really appreciated the adults who attended our concerts!f I moved from a North Platte, Nebraska to spend my Senior year in Bountiful, Utah. North Platte was supportive of their Senior High band, very well attended concerts.

We formed a stage band because our parents grew up in the WWII big band era; to try to restore some of the joy in their memories, their lost youth. The Class of 69 grew up through the Vietnam era, we related. We too lost classmates too young to war.

Anne Frank may not have been betrayed to the Nazis after all

Anne Frank lived two years in hiding while she wrote her now-classic diary, and her family’s 1944 arrest by the Nazis has long been attributed to the work of an unknown betrayer. But a new study published Friday by the Anne Frank House museum in Amsterdam “illustrates that other scenarios should also be considered” — in other words, perhaps no traitor has been definitively identified because none existed. The fresh research suggests Sicherheitsdienst agents were not intentionally looking for hidden Jews, but simply investigating food ration fraud. Frank’s diary mentions that two salesmen who worked in the building where she was hidden were arrested and her family had no food coupons as a result. “A company where people were working illegally and two sales representatives were arrested for dealing in ration coupons obviously ran the risk of attracting the attention of the authorities,” said researcher Gertjan Broek, postulating that it was this encounter with authorities that led to the discovery of the Franks’ attic hideaway. Anne Frank died, likely from typhus, in the Bergen-Belsen concentration camp at 15 years old, just a few weeks before British soldiers arrived to liberate the prisoners. She was buried in a mass grave. Bonnie Kristian

Lyrics:
Hark how the bells,

Sweet silver bells,

All seem to say,

Throw cares away

Christmas is here,

Bringing good cheer,

To young and old,

Meek and the bold.

Ding dong ding dong

That is their song

With joyful ring

All caroling.

One seems to hear

Words of good cheer

From everywhere

Filling the air.

Oh how they pound,

Raising the sound,

O’er hill and dale,

Telling their tale.

Gaily they ring

While people sing

Songs of good cheer,

Christmas is here.

Merry, Merry, Merry, Merry Christmas,

Merry, Merry, Merry, Merry Christmas.

On on they send,

On without end,

Their joyful tone

To every home.

Ding dong ding dong

Ding dong ding dong

Hark how the bells,

Sweet silver bells,

All seem to say,

Throw cares away

(We will throw cares away)

Christmas is here,

Bringing good cheer,

To young and old,
