God gave me my voice. If I ever turned my back on Him, I'd be finished.

Sometimes it's good to get a few words out.... Elvis said of prayer....

'just to put yourself on your knees'

I ain't no saint but I've tried never to do anything that would hurt my family or offend God.

I've examined my conscience and asked myself if I led anybody astray, even indirectly, and I'm at peace with my conscience.

Right and WrongYears after Gladys' death, Elvis reflected,

'I still think of her every single, solitary day. If I never do anything that's really wrong or bad, it'll be because of Mama. She wouldn't never let me do anything wrong.'


Grace

Elvis was able to sustain a sense of personal grace that prevented him from getting caught up in some of the pitfalls of wealth and fame.

'I've always treated people just like I would like to be treated'.

Elvis attributed his gracious nature to his parents: "It's the way I was brought up.... My mother and father - the whole family - were always considerate of other people's feelings. I am proud of the way I was brought up to believe and to treat people. I have respect for people"


God's Love felt through Music
"Church was our way of life since I can remember", Elvis told movie columnist May Mann. "The last time I went, there was so much confusion and autograph seeking that out of respect, I've stayed away"

However, "I've been working on religious songs for an album. I feel God and His goodness, and I believe I can express His love for us in music"

(I'll say!!! :wink: :) :P )


Gifts from God

"I believe in the Bible. I believe that all good things come from God. I don't believe I'd sing the way I do if God hadn't wanted me to"
