175 years ago today - Feb 8, 1846 (Morning)

President Brigham Young led in prayer according to the Holy Order, asking for the Holy Spirit to rest upon all those who had received their endowments. Gave thanks for the privileges which they had enjoyed in the temple, and asked for the privileges of returning and dedicating the other rooms of the temple in the Lords own due time, that the records of the temple might be preserved, that the temple might not be polluted, that the walls of the Nauvoo House might be preserved, and completed, and that the records of the Nauvoo House might be preserved, and many other excellent and needful things. That the whether might be favorable for the journey, that those who go might be able to find provisions, that teams and means may be provided for all the saints to go in due time and that the temple may be completed and dedicated to the name of the Lord. -- Nauvoo, Illinois
