Elder Terence M Vinson, Drawing Closer to God, October 2013 General Confference
"Our son Ben, when he was 16 and speaking in stake conference, asked the question, 'How would you feel if someone promised you something every week and never kept the promise?' He continued, 'Do we take seriously the promise we make when we partake of the sacrament and covenant to keep His commandments and always remember Him?'"

Sister Carole M Stephens, First Counselor in the Relief Society General Presidency, Do We Know What We Have?, General Conference October 2013
"We need the opportunity to renew our covenants each week as we partake of the sacrament. Latter-day prophets and apostles have taught that when we worthily partake of the sacrament, we can renew not only our baptismal covenant but “'all covenants entered into with the Lord.'7"

In Bryant S. Hinckley, Sermons and Missionary Services of Melvin Joseph Ballard (1949), 150
“We want every Latter-day Saint to come to the sacrament table because it is the place for self-investigation, for self-inspection, where we may learn to rectify our course and to make right our own lives, bringing ourselves into harmony with the teachings of the Church and with our brethren and sisters.”

The Sacrament Prayers
John 14:15-18
 15 If ye alove me, bkeep my ccommandments.
 16 And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another aComforter, that he may babide with you for ever;
 17 Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you.
 18 I will not leave you acomfortless: I will bcome to you.
My thought on John 14:15-18
V15 and keep His commandments which He has given them.
V16-18 that they may always have His spirit to be with them.
