[Brigham Young]
I pray my Father in heaven to bless you with His Holy Spirit; with grace to help you in every time of need, under every circumstance, and to let His angels watch over you, to preserve you in your covenants and vows which you have made with one another, and with your God. I also pray you in Christ's stead to hearken to the commandments of heaven, that you may secure unto yourselves eternal lives. I offer this prayer to the great I AM in your behalf...
