Wise parents will recognize the protective power of regular family prayer. President Kimball taught: “No mother would carelessly send her little children forth to school on a wintry morning without warm clothes to protect against the snow and rain and cold. But there are numerous fathers and mothers who send their children to school without the protective covering available to them through prayer—a protection against exposure to unknown hazards, evil people, and base temptations.”

He will let no trial descend upon us without giving us strength and grace to endure it, if we will live so as to obtain it. This is His promise to us. And God is bound irrevocably by His covenant to us.”

George Q. Cannon, Salt Lake Tabernacle, August 6, 1893; see Collected Discourses 3:330 and Gospel Doctrine 1:170

The Lord's Promises to You

Power to avoid deception

President Ezra Taft Benson “The Book of Mormon —Keystone of our Religion” October 1986 General Conference


President Ezra Taft Benson

The Lord's Promises to You

“It (the iron rod) was the word of God; and [note this promise] whoso would hearken unto the word of God, and would hold fast unto it, they would never perish; neither could the temptations and the fiery darts of the adversary overpower them unto blindness, to lead them away to destruction.” (1 Ne. 15:23-24) Not only will the word of God lead us to the fruit which is desirable above all others, but in the word of God and through it we can find the power to resist temptation, the power to thwart the work of Satan and his emissaries.

This is an answer to the great challenge of our time. The word of God, as found in the scriptures, in the words of living prophets, and in personal revelation, has the power to fortify the Saints and arm them with the Spirit so they can resist evil, hold fast to the good, and find joy in this life.

President Benson - Ensign, May 1986, Priesthood Leadership Meeting, p. 79 - “The Power of the Word.”
