[Patriarchal Blessings] Patriarchal Blessing of Emanuel Masters Murphy given by Joseph Smith, Sr.

... if thou art faithful prisons shall not hold thee, walls cannot contain thee, thou shalt stand with the hundred and forty and four thousand, if thou wilt receive the priesthood. be patient and prayerful, pray in the groves and in the forests and thou shalt have power to receive visions of heaven, and thou shalt be a Priest in time and in eternity, and thou shalt preach to the spirits in prison, and have the honor to preach to thy father and mother and bring them into the kingdom. I seal the seal of God upon thy forehead, and seal thee up unto eternal life in the name of Jesus Christ, even so, Amen. ...
