President Henry B. Eyring, first counselor in the First Presidency, talked about how we, just like Joseph Smith in Liberty Jail, may sometimes feel we are far from God and covered by our own "pavilion." We may be unwilling to listen or accept God's will and time for us and by doing so, we are "covered by a pavilion of motivations that draw us away from God and make him seem distant and inaccessible...."

"Our feelings of separation from God will diminish as we become more childlike before him. That is not easy in a world where the opinions of other human beings can have such an effect on our motives. But it will help us recognize this truth: God is close to us and aware of us and never hides from his faithful children."

President Eyring spoke Sunday morning on "Where is the Pavilion?"
