3 Nephi 17: 21-24
“And when he had said these words, he wept, and the multitude bare record of it, and he took their little children, one by one, and blessed them, and prayed unto the Father for them.
And when he had done this he wept again;
And he spake unto the multitude, and said unto them: Behold your little ones.
And as they looked to behold they cast their eyes towards heaven, and they saw the heavens open, and they saw angels descending out of heaven as it were in the midst of fire; and they came down and encircled those little ones about, and they were encircled about with fire; and the angels did minister unto them.”
This is my motivation to make any and all sacrifices the Lord may ask of me. An open prayer to God for the sake of Zion, and the innocent of the world.
Oh, God the Eternal Father, I ask Thee, in the name of Jesus Christ, to hear my cries this hour;
I SEEK A NEW JERUSALEM, ZION, WHERE THESE MAY DWELL.
NOT FOR ME, BUT FOR THE SAKE OF THE LITTLE ONES OH LORD, HEAR MY PRAYER AND SUPPLICATION UNTO THEE!!
HELP ME, THAT I MAY ASSIST YOU AND YOUR PEOPLE TO ESTABLISH A NEW JERUSALEM IN THIS OUR DAY, FOR THE INNOCENT, THE PURE IN HEART AND THE LITTLE ONES TO COME UNTO THEE, OH LORD, AND AWAY FROM THE CORRUPTION OF BABYLON!
A PLACE WHERE YOU MAY DWELL WITH YOUR PEOPLE!
Lord my God, my Savior and Redeemer, hear my prayer.
Oh, Lord hear me as I fast in the hope for the establishment of Zion!
I seek the strength and determination to let go of the concerns and cares of this world, of my selfish life, to lose myself in the service of my fellow being; Thy service. To commit my life, my time and energy, to following Thee, oh Lord, as Thou did follow your Father, even from the beginning!
Help me, as I try, in my small pathetic way, to be like Thee, to follow Thy path oh Lord my God, my Father and guide, my mediator and example, to be able to hear Thy voice and have the desire and courage to follow Thee, in whom the path of eternal life is found!
Allow me to stay connected to You and hear Thy voice, and every communication You send me, that I might know Thy will, teach me how I can be Thy friend while seeking to follow Thee on the path and ascension to the Father, and progress upward as Thou has done in your perfect example from before the foundation of the world! Amen.
CHRIST, MY LORD, MY GOD; NOT FOR ME, BUT FOR THE SAKE OF THE INNOCENT, THESE LITTLE ONES, GIVE ME STRENGTH, GUIDANCE AND DIRECTION.
As terribly weak as I am, I seek to be Thy servant, to help in Thy work in this trying day, to help in making things ready for Your return and to bring about Thy kingdom here on earth. But I am so weak, so tired, and so slothful; however I know with Thee my God, all things are possible!
Free me from this darkness that I may rise up and fulfill the full measure of my creation, to accomplish what I was sent to this Telestial world to do, and that I may serve Thee oh Lord, all the days that remain of my life in this fallen place, and make things ready for Thy return!
I’m so tired of Babylon! I wish to leave its employ and seek to follow Thee and find refuge with Thee! To have the blessing to associate with Thee and the saints of New Jerusalem and the Church of the First Born as Thou has promised me. I seek to help in Thy work and in Thy glory in bringing to pass the immortality and eternal life of man. I seek to follow Thy path and a place in the business of Thy Holy Family.
BUT, NOT FOR MYSELF, I SEEK NEW JERUSALEM FOR THE SAKE OF THE LITTLE ONES, FOR THE INNOCENT AND THE PURE IN HEART!! TO PROVIDE A SANCTUARY, FOR THOSE WHO SEEK IT, A PLACE OF HEAVEN, AWAY FROM HORRORS OF THIS FALLEN WORLD!! THAT THE PURE IN HEART AND THESE LITTLE ONES, MAY GROW IN THE TRUTH AND LIGHT OF THY GOSPEL PATH AND IN THY PRESENCE!!
Oh Father who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy name, and may Thy kingdom come, and Thy will be done, on earth, as it is in Heaven.
Forgive me oh Father for my endless sins, weaknesses and failings. Apply the sacred atoning sacrifice of The Holy one of Israel, my Savior and Lord, that I may be free of the blood and sins of this wicked generation. In His Holy name, Jesus Christ. Amen!
Help us dear Lord, that we may repent of our carnal ways and desires.
That we Thy children and people, may turn from this dark world and towards thee in Thy light and path. Away from the cares of this fallen place and the falsehoods it smothers us with; and instead feast upon Your words and follow You on the path of ascension, to eternal lives, worlds without end.
The evil one strikes at the very foundation of our lives, and with great distress he seeks to destroy us and our loved ones with lies and falsehoods; to stain our souls with the blood and sins of this wicked generation.
WE SEEK NEW JERUSALEM, A HEAVENLY OUTPOST HERE ON EARTH, THAT WE MAY TAKE THE INNOCENT, THE PURE IN HEART, AND THESE LITTLE ONES AND BATHE THEM IN THE LIGHT OF TRUTH, TO BE MINISTERED TO BY THY ANGELS AND THY HEAVENLY GLORY.
Oh Lord, cleanse our hearts, our minds, pour out Thy spirit upon us, that we may be counted with Thee, and fight against the father of lies, who it seems has corrupted all Thy people, save a few humble followers of Christ, who even yet struggle with the precepts of men.
As we receive the new baptism and forsake our sins, forgive us. That we may receive an outpouring of the spirit and ascend to Thy presence, and help you with Your Fathers business of harvesting souls.
FOR THE SAKE OF THE LITTLE ONES LORD, LET US NOT FAIL THEE; OR THEM…
Holy, Holy, Holy is our Lord Jesus Christ, whom we seek to follow, but so pitifully struggle to emulate.
FOR THESE INNOCENT LITTLE ONES, AND OUR HOPE FOR ZION, PLEASE GIVE US STRENGHT AND HEAR THIS PRAYER!
We love Thee and stand ready and watching for Your every communication.
In the name of Jesus Christ. Amen
