“Search, Ponder, and Pray” (Children’s Songbook, 109)
- Show the Gospel Art Picture: “Joseph Smith Translating the Book of Mormon”
- In the fall of 1828, a young schoolteacher named Oliver Cowdery took a teaching job in Manchester, New York, and stayed with the family of Lucy and Joseph Smith Sr.
- He heard about Joseph Smith and wanted to learn about him and the Book of Mormon. He prayed about it and received revelation that it was true.
- Oliver eventually took over helping translate the plates after Martin Harris lost the 116 pages.
How can I know the Joseph Smith story is true?
Prayer Is the Soul’s Sincere Desire (Hymns #145)
- Oliver Cowdrey wanted to translate like Joseph Smith did. Joseph asked the Lord in prayer, and section 6 was the answer to that prayer.
- What does the Lord tell Oliver about desires? Does this apply to our desires?
What things do I desire?
“The Holy Ghost” (Children’s Songbook, 105)
- The answer for Oliver Cowdrey was that he would not be allowed to translate.
- Yesterday we talked about how the first revelation discussed desires. What else does the Lord say about desires in this section?
- We may desire something, but if we are afraid, it will block our ability to get our righteous desires.
How can I have more faith in the Savior?
Coloring Page: “Jesus Can Help Me Do Hard Things” (October 2019 Liahona and Friend)
“The Still Small Voice” (Children’s Songbook, 106)
- Part of the reason Oliver was not able to translate was because he wasn’t used to receiving revelation through the Spirit.
- What do we learn in these verses about revelations from Heavenly Father?
- How can we receive revelation and know that’s what we’re feeling?
When I have felt the Spirit in the past? How did He feel?
Coloring page: “I choose to fill my life with things that invite the Spirit” (August 2012 Friend)
“Come, Come, Ye Saints” (Hymns, no. 30)
- Even though Joseph had already experienced “difficult circumstances” while doing the Lord’s work (Doctrine and Covenants 6:18), he and Oliver likely had no idea how difficult those circumstances would become over the next several years.
- But the Lord knew, and He knows what trials are in your future too. These verses were for Joseph and Oliver, and they are for us, too.
- How might Joseph and Oliver have felt after hearing these words? What do you find in these verses that helps you trust the Lord?
- What does it mean to “look unto [Christ] in every thought”?
How can I look unto Christ more in my life?
