Blessings for the Faithful

Doctrine and Covenants 109
The dedicatory prayer for the Kirtland temple.

What blessings did Joseph Smith request for the faithful?
* God's assistance
* That they might feel His power
* That they may be taught from the best books
* That they may grow up in Him
* That they may receive a fullness of the Holy Ghost
* That they may be organized
* That they may be prepared to obtain every needful thing
* That they might speedily repent
* And be restored to the blessings ordained to be poured out upon them
* That they might be armed with power
* That they may be the bearers of exceedingly great and glorious tidings
* That no weapon formed against them shall prosper
* That no combination of wickedness shall prevail over them
* That there may be an end to lying reports
* Deliverance from under the yoke of persecution
* Forgiveness of transgressions
* The gift of tongues and interpretation of tongues
* Testimony
* Deliverance from the calamity of the wicked
* That they may be prepared for the last day
* That their garments may be pure
* That they may be clothed with robes of righteousness
* That He may hear and answer their prayers
* That they may be lifted up at the last day
* That they may ever be with the Lord


  1. This is awesome! I can't wait to check back and see what your discussing. I'm considering adding in a section like this to my current blog because I'm studying Isaiah and I need all the help I can get. Looking forward to your future posts!!!!!

  2. Thank you, and welcome, Monique! I'd love to have you come back and discuss. Also, I'd love to join in your Isaiah discussions, so let me know if you start posting.

  3. Will do. I'm kinda lost right now so I have little to post. I haven't figured out exactly how to go about this. I want to because it will help me gain greater understanding but how to organize it is another question all together.:) I'll let you know...
