Why Is It Important to Follow God’s Living Prophets?

2 Kings 2–7

Lesson Title Poster & Coloring Page

Display this poster on the board to generate contemplation and a discussion


Learning Together - Attention Activity

Print and cut out these cards and form three groups in your class to distribute one of these cards to each group.  Have them look up the scripture passage and search for something that inspires them to read and follow the teachings of today's prophets and apostles.  There is a second page with a statement to post on the board to finish the statement.


Sharing about a Living Prophet to Others

This goes along with the first bullet point in the Learn Together section of the lesson.  Print out these 3 posters. Ask the class how they might answer these questions from non-members about a living prophet. Put the first question on the board and invite the class to offer answers - put up the remaining posters one at time and share answers.  

Next, pass out these scripture strips and have class members take turns looking up the scriptures and share what they find to help them testify about a living prophet as they post their scripture passage on the board.

Counsel of Our Living Prophet

This goes with the second bullet point in the Learn Together section of the lesson.  Print enough copies of the first page for each person to fill out, pass them out and give them time to fill out their ideas about the most recent counsel from President Nelson.  They can search the conference talks from April 2022 for ideas.  Then post on the board to question posters to encourage a group discussion.

The Prophet of God Activity

This activity goes with Learning Together bullet point three. Print enough of these journal cards for everyone in the class.  Let them review Elder Anderson's talk "The Prophet of God" and they could write at the top how the prophet can help them come closer to Christ. On the bottom of the card, they could write something they are inspired to do to follow the prophet. Invite them to share what they wrote.


Act In Faith

You can use the journals above as you encourage class members to ponder and record what they will do to act on the impressions they received today. If they would like, they could share their ideas. Invite them to think about how acting on their impressions will strengthen their relationships with Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ.
