With an early September fall resulting in the injury of muscles in his back and virtual participation in First Presidency meetings and October 2023 general conference, President Russell M. Nelson has reported that he is slowly returning to work in person, thanking those who have prayed for his recovery.
“Thank you for your prayers for me during the last two months,” wrote the President of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. “My recovery from my fall in September when I injured the muscles in my back has been rigorous. I have needed your prayers.”
President Nelson quoted the teachings of the apostle James, that the effectual fervent prayers of righteous men and women “availeth much.” (See James 5:16.) “Your prayers opened the heavens, and the Lord is blessing me,” President Nelson said.
