I was awake at 5:00 this morning, laying in bed, musing, when a brief wave of understanding swept over me, like the wave of an ocean, and then rested back to sea. It startled me, because I really wasn’t expecting an answer to my fast and prayer yesterday. Well, I was, in that I fasted and prayed in faith, knowing God would hear us, and move us forward in the right direction. (I joined in the fast for our country.)

Let me just ask, How does a Mormon re-set their spiritual life? Why was Joseph Smith so driven by God to build temples? How come we have so many now all over the world? How did we have 35 chapels damaged in the floods in the Philippines??? I mean, how did we get so many there?

The General Relief Society meeting, broadcast all over the world last Saturday, gave the feeling that the women of the church have a marvelous power in the world today. The music sounded like a choir of angels, even when I was singing. I was so moved by the music. Thank-you for that.

The church is doing okay, and once in a while we all need to re-set ourselves to it. How do we re-set? Regular temple attendance. It settles us down enough to re-set our lives to be in line with God.

That was the message in the wave of inspiration that passed over me. “Go to the temple”


The voice of warning was loud and clear in 1960, why didn’t we take note then??? Our leaders haven’t been strong on it since, so I’ll do it, with President McKay. Understanding now the world we live in, I will go to the temple, re-set myself, and work to preserve our freedom by having courage to walk through each door as it presents itself to me.

I think it is time we become like Moroni.  “Use the Book of Mormon to learn how to expose and combat the falsehoods in socialism. Our nation will continue to degenerate unless we read and heed the words of the God of this land, Jesus Christ, and quit building up and upholding the secret combinations which the Book of Mormon tells us proved the downfall of both previous American civilizations.” (Ezra Taft benson)

Join in the day of fasting and prayer tomorrow, September 28, for whatever part of this cause of freedom you deem important.  For me I pray that we the people might become aware of what these secret combinations are and where they are rooted, and knowing this, we might know how to rise above them with our righteousness, putting on the armor of God, and moving forward in any way that we can.   Tomorrow is the Jewish “Day of Atonement”, and also the day selected for a day of fasting and prayer for our country by Glenn Beck.

Washington allowed the day of prayer of the Muslims last Friday. Monday is the day of fasting and prayer for the Jews, and call it a coincidence, but the day chosen by Glenn Beck before he understood what the Jewish Day of Atonement was. Surely God will hear us now.

This, I file under that strange name, “whippletree”, because when all is said and done, a prayer for righteousness, is a prayer for repentance.

btw, if you choose to watch the video, at the end of it there will be pop-up videos at the bottom. Some of those are worth watching. For instance, do you want to know why the prophet no longer gives us “the warning” in general conference? Did the time for warning end with David O McKay? Even Ezra Taft Bension was a little soft on it, compared to David O McKay. The one on Ether’s description of secret combinations may leave you shaking in your boots. Take it for what it’s worth.
