I found this a very sweet prayer given at the White House on National Day of Prayer.


Sister Joy D. Jones Prayer at the White House

Jones Prayer
This prayer was given by Sister Joy D. JonesPrimary general president of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, during the National Day of Prayer at the White House in Washington, D.C., Thursday May 2, 2019.


O God, our Eternal Father, we approach Thee today in humble prayer.

At our nation’s founding, its leaders sought Thee. During war and peace, in prosperity and poverty, we pled for Thy providential care. And Thou hast continually answered our supplications in godly wisdom.

On this National Day of Prayer, we express our gratitude for Thy goodness and mercy. We thank Thee for the freedoms we enjoy. We acknowledge our accountability to Thee, and to each other, for how we exercise those freedoms.

At this time, Father, we pray for our public servants. We pray for the leaders of this nation. Bless them, protect them and grant them wisdom. Magnify their efforts as they seek to live up to the holy charge of their vocation. We ask for Thy watchcare over those in uniform. Please bless their spouses, their children and their loved ones. Bless them for the sacrifices they make on our behalf.

Father, we pray for the religious leaders of this land. Grant them the strength to shepherd their flocks in Thy word. Inspire our citizenry. Strengthen the families and communities of the United States of America.

Please help us to unite as one nation under God.

We give thanks for the infinite grace of Thy Son Jesus Christ. May we draw on His example and strength as we seek to lift Thy children, to care for the widows and the wounded, and to serve the poor of both purse and spirit.

Father, in these times of heightened complexities and opportunities, we plead for Thy continued guidance and forbearance. We commit to love with more righteousness and to live with greater moral rectitude.

Thou hast always inclined Thine ear to our nation’s petitions, and we are forever grateful. We offer this prayer in that same spirit of gratitude and reverence, and we do so in the sacred name of Thy Holy Son, Jesus Christ. Amen.

“Though we are incomplete, God loves us completely. Though we are imperfect, He loves us perfectly. Though we may feel lost and without compass, God's love encompasses us completely." - Dieter F. Uchtdorf  #sharegoodness #ldsconf:

God Is Our Father
God our Father has ears with which to hear our prayers.

He has eyes with which to see our actions.

He has a mouth with which to speak to us.

He has a heart with which to feel compassion and love.

He is real. He is living.

We are his children made in His image.

We look like Him and He looks like us.

Heavenly Parents, Earthly Parents

A proclamation is a very important message. “The Family: A Proclamation to the World” was written by prophets and apostles. It teaches us what Heavenly Father wants us to know about families. Use the sentences and pictures below to learn more about what the proclamation teaches about our Heavenly Parents and earthly parents.

    Cut out the cards and glue them to paper. Flip them over and take turns trying to match the sentences with their pictures!
  • Each one of us is a child of our Heavenly Father and Heavenly Mother.

  • Our Heavenly Parents created us as a girl or a boy before we were born.

  • We agreed to be born to earthly parents, to learn and grow here on earth.

  • In the temple, we can be sealed to our earthly families forever.

  • Parents are supposed to protect, teach, and care for their children.

  • Fathers and mothers are supposed to help one another.

  • Our Heavenly Parents want us to become parents one day too.

  • We can become like our Heavenly Parents and live with Them again.
