But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light:—1 Peter 2:9
May we have vision. May we put forth effort. May we exemplify faith and virtue and ever make prayer a part of our lives. Then we shall indeed be a royal priesthood. —Thomas S. Monson
This Day in Church History

How can we help priesthood holders feel more confident in their divine identity?
