After the offering plate was passed,
Mr. Fillmore gave everyone a piece of paper and
pen and said,
"I know you just
gave. So now,
please put on this
slip of paper the amount you desired to give.
Write it out in your own handwriting in ink,
the amount you wanted to give, and put it away somewhere.
We make affirmations and put them in writing.
[Myrtle and I] used to write out our desires,
and they would come to pass in the most remarkable ways.
A long time afterward, we would look over our papers
and we would come across these... and there had been fulfillment.
So let us put our desires in writing and give them to God.
