In The Church of Jesus Christ (WHQ: Monongahela, Pennsylvania), all sacred covenants (except for the marriage covenant between one man and one woman for one life) are made out-of-doors at the water's edge (a natural body of water only such as a creek, stream, river, pond, lake, etc.) before the convert and baptizing minister walk down into the water.

What gift do we need? Knowledge of how Satan operates. There is something important not being taught to our youth.
The reason it is not being taught is almost as important.
Principles of democracy are the principles of the gospel of Jesus Christ.
To love they neighbor is to defend their equality under governmental laws.
Besides those are our rules of constitutional law, it protects citizens from each other's wants and needs. Those wants and needs are driven by Satan. Satan is not fictional it is in each of us to operate survival. In order to teach correct principles of democracy we must address our participation in violating the rules ourselves. Bribery and Slavery-based drug laws violate citizen equality. Every attorney has some knowledge this is happening, but cannot make themselves honor their oath to God and constitution to take lawful actions to correct it.
The Why Part. Satan is instinct mechanism. It is constructing reality for your minds and directs each life forms operations. It obeys its rules and laws God gave it to operate. It is many copies of the same entity.
By asking LDS Pres. Thomas S. Monson? This gift from God can be shared.

@Michigander,

That’s nice, but it’s still inconsistent with what the scriptures teach, what the Prophet Joseph Smith established, and what the true restored Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (Salt Lake City, Utah) practices. And a marriage for “one life” seems rather petty in comparison to the covenants of eternal marriage that are available in temples that are consecrated by the proper priesthood authority of God.

Anyway, this article makes a good point about why covenants, both making them and keeping them, are so vitally important to one’s spiritual welfare.
