Sister *****, by the authority of the Holy Melchizedek Priesthood I lay my hands upon your head and give unto you your Patriarchal Blessing which should be a guide and a comfort to you throughout your life. *****, be faithful unto the Lord and His commandments at all times. All of His blessings are predicated upon obedience.
Thou art of the noble Tribe of Ephraim and through that lineage you are entitled to the blessings God has promised to His faithful children. Be faithful to your heritage. Honor your Father and your Mother and your brothers throughout your life. Be good to them. Be kind to them and you will feel the love of God wax strong within you. He has many blessings in store for you and among them are the Spirit of Beauty, the Spirit of Love and the Spirit of Devotion. Develop those qualities and the Lord will increase them within you so that you can become mighty in the strength and power of these great values.
I bless you with the Spirit of Faith so that you will be able through your prayers to reach the Throne of God and receive an answer for your important decisions in life and be guided by His spirit through the Holy Ghost which has been given to you. He will direct you in your choices so that you will not be left to wander in darkness, but have the Light of God to direct you. He desires you to develop yourself and not depend upon Him for everything but when you need something beyond your power to understand or to control, then feel free to call upon Him for assistance. Through that faith and through that testimony you may have the power of Gods answer to your prayers.
You are blessed with talents. Develop them. You have the quality within you of accomplishing much in music. You will be able to appreciate the qualities of the fine arts and the wonders of nature; the beauty of harmony; the glories of life and the light of Christ. I bless you with the ability to comprehend and develop these qualities so that you will be able to live more abundantly as a true child of God in His Universe.
I bless you through your faithfulness and through your devotion that you shall have the privilege of having a choice companion given to you to take you into the House of the Lord and have you sealed to him for time and eternity that your children may be born in the Covenant and that you may seek after your ancestry and have the family links joined together and be able to take your place in God's Holy family and have the claim on your own children for time and eternity.
I bless you with the privilege of holding important assignment in the Church. Heed those callings when they come to you and the Lord will bless you with the ability to raise your family and help others in their growth and progression. Through that cooperation you will feel the Spirit of the Lord and the Love He has for His children, your brothers and sisters upon the earth.
I bless you with a rich life. You shall not want for the necessities as long as you obey God's commandments and are liberal with your means to Him. He shall be liberal with you, and you shall enjoy prosperity. You shall enjoy His protecting care and you shall walk in Light and be able to avoid darkness. Shun the temptations of the tempter. He will tempt you sorely. Put your faith and trust in the Lord and cleave to the Iron Rod. The evil one is real and he is working energetically, and if you cleave to the Iron Rod the Lord will give you the assistance that you need to overcome the powers of the evil one so that you can return unto your God who has provided you this Second Estate.
You have been preserved to come forth in this dispensation of the Fullness of Times for a great purpose. Live the Lord's commandments and you shall find that you will be a power in raising your children and influencing others in the right path.
I seal these blessings upon your head through your faithfulness with the right to come forth in the Morning of the First Resurrection crowned with honor and glory in the Kingdom of God, and I do it in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.
