The Spirit of God

Pat Graham, “Sharing Time: The Spirit of God,” Friend, Jan 1986, 46

Help us by the power of thy Spirit, that we may mingle our voices … with acclamations of praise, singing Hosanna to God and the Lamb! (D&C 109:79).

When a temple is completed, it is dedicated as a house of the Lord. A special prayer is offered, and those in attendance give the Hosanna Shout and sing “The Spirit of God” (Hymns, no. 2). A temple is a very sacred place, and when people are worthy, they often feel the Spirit of God when they go into His house.

When you live the teachings of the gospel, you can have a feeling inside that lets you know that what you are doing or thinking is right. Through prayer, you can receive answers to your problems. When you say that you know the true Church has been restored, others who hear you can have a feeling inside that helps them to know that what you have said is true. As you dedicate yourselves to doing good, the Spirit of God will guide and instruct you.

Pictured are the temples that were dedicated by September 1985. The date of dedication follows the name of each temple. Cut out the pictures and arrange them in order of dedication. Think of ways that you can prepare yourself to help with missionary and temple work.

Sharing Time Ideas

1. Relate personal experiences about visiting temple open house or dedication.

2. Attach each temple picture to toothpick and insert in gumdrop. Place each temple where it is located on large world map.

3. Sing “The Spirit of God” (Hymns, no. 2), and “I Love to See the Temple” (Supplement to More Songs for Children, page 4).
