Do we take the time during the week to reflect upon the promises we make at baptism and renew each week with the Sacrament? I wanted to post the Sacramental prayers, said by the priests and elders each Sunday.
Here is the Prayer on the Bread;
"O God, the Eternal Father, we ask thee in the name of thy Son, Jesus Christ, to bless and sanctify this bread to the souls of all those who partake of it; that they may eat in remembrance of the body of thy Son, and witness unto thee, O God, the Eternal Father, that they are willing to take upon them the name of thy Son, and always remember him, and keep his commandments which he hath given them, that they may always have his Spirit to be with them. Amen."
And the water:
"O God, the Eternal Father, we ask thee, in the name of thy Son, Jesus Christ, to bless and sanctify this [water] to the souls of all those who drink of it, that they may do it in remembrance of the blood of thy Son, which was shed for them; that they may witness unto thee, O God, the Eternal Father, that they do always remember him, that they may have his Spirit to be with them. Amen." (Moroni 4,5).
Do we always remember him, so that we may have his spirit to be with us? Do we keep his commandments and serve others? Do we study the scriptures and words of the prophets so we can remember him? Do we stay away from things that could prevent us from the spirit? Are we able to feel of Christ's sanctifying power in our lives?
That we may ever do so is my prayer.
