Trujillo Peru Temple Dedicatory Prayer
Following is the text of the prayer offered to dedicate the Trujillo Peru Temple on June 21, 2015. President Dieter F. Uchtdorf, Second Counselor in the First Presidency, presided over the three sessions of the dedication.
O God our Eternal Father, we bow our heads before Thee with thanksgiving and love on this day of dedication. Our hearts are jubilant and reach out to Thee in faith and prayer. We invite Thy Holy Spirit to attend us.
We thank Thee for Thy Beloved Son, our Lord Jesus Christ. We thank Thee for the Prophet Joseph Smith through whom Thou hast restored Thy holy priesthood and eternal gospel principles, ordinances, and keys that will be exercised in Thy holy temple. We thank Thee for the faithful missionaries and members who have built this great work in this blessed nation of Peru and around the world. They have given of their time, their means, and their very lives for Thy cause and kingdom. We thank Thee for a living prophet in our days, even President Thomas S. Monson; we love him and we pray for him.
Wilt Thou bless the leaders and the people of this nation for their friendliness to Thy Church. We pray for all in this land who have an opportunity to hear and ponder the message of the restored gospel of Jesus Christ. Please touch their hearts and lives with Thy goodness. Hasten the miracle of conversion among these great and good people.
We thank Thee for the sacred record of Lehi, Nephi and Jacob, Alma and Mosiah, Benjamin and Mormon, and of Moroni. We thank Thee for this voice that has come from the dust to bear witness of the divinity of Thy Beloved Son, the Lord Jesus Christ.
