Priesthood and Personal Prayer!
I am grateful for this inspired talk given by President Henry B. Eyring! We love this faithful son of God, every time he speaks we are inspired to change for the better! I heard this talk just a month before my sons twelfth birthday. As a mother my heart was touched as I listened to this beloved apostle of God speak! He said, “ With your acceptance of the priesthood, you have received the right to speak and to act in the name of God. That right will become a reality only as you receive inspiration from God. Only then will you be able to speak in His name. And only then can you act in His name. You might have made the mistake of thinking, “Oh, that isn’t so difficult. I could get inspiration if I am ever asked to give a talk or if I ever need to give a priesthood blessing.” Or the young deacon or teacher might take comfort in the thought, “When I am older or when I am called as a missionary, then I will know what God would say and what God would do.” I loved the connection he made between inspiration and the ability to act as the Savior would act. As a mother I look forward to seeing my son seek for inspiration and then follow with courage and faith! I am grateful for the counsel and love of Henry B. Eyring, when he speaks we listen with joy!
