Patriarchal Blessing of Hannah Elizabeth Adams given by Joseph Smith, Sr. ... At a blessing meeting held in the Lord's House in Kirtland ... Thou hast desired to see Jesus and the winding up the scene of this generation.

Thou shalt have Power over Devils and unclean spirits, and they shall not have Power over thee. Thou shalt have power over sickness and sickness shall not have power over thee. Thou shalt have power to minister to thy children in the abscence [absence] of thy husband. Thou shalt have a residence in Zion. thy posterity shall dwell with thee. Thou shalt have Power over thy father's family, shalt have power over enemies.... Thou shalt stand on the earth and see Jesus Christ. No power shall take this blessing from thee if thou wilt lay hold on it by faith. ... shalt instruct the daughters of the Lamanites * shalt speak in the gift of tongues * shalt understand their languages by the power of the spirit. ... I seal thee up to Eternal life. Amen
