Patriarchal Blessing of David Elliot given by Joseph Smith, Sr.

... Thou shalt be able to quench the violence of fire. Floods shall not drown thee, winds and waves shall obey thy voice and the elements shall be subject unto thee throug[h] faith, and thou shalt bring thy thousands as seals of thy ministry. ... Thou shalt be able to set thy house in order & stand at the head of thy family like Nephi of old. ...

Thou shalt tarry till the Redeemer comes and see the end of this generation. Thou shalt be numbered with the hundred & forty four thousand on Mount Zion. ... And also I seal thee up unto eternal life in the name of Jesus. Amen

[Patriarchal Blessing Book 1:60, quoted in Early Patriarchal Blessings of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, Joseph Smith Sr. (Author), H. Michael Marquardt (Editor), http://amzn.to/rCBHVe]
