This year’s theme is James 1:5–6: “If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him. But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed.”
Resources to support the 2017 Mutual theme for the youth of the Church are now available at youth.lds.org, including a music album, poster, art for t-shirts, and other materials.
The mutual theme will be used in camps, youth activities, firesides, Sunday lessons, Mutual opening exercises, and in For the Strength of Youth (FSY) conferences around the world.
The 2017 Mutual Theme page has a link to download the music video so you can show it at home or at Church without relying on an Internet connection. The video is also on YouTube in English, Spanish, and other languages.
The animated characters featured on the poster are also featured in a series of videos found on YouTube and will be featured in new videos throughout 2017.
The full album will also be recorded in Spanish and Portuguese.
The theme song, “Ask of God,” will be available in 10 languages. Sheet music for the theme song is available now in English and will become available in the January edition of the Liahona magazine in 27 languages.
The song “Hearing His Voice” is also available now in English.
Download the 2017 Mutual theme poster in various sizes on youth.lds.org.

Youth will be invited to share stories about prayer on social media using the hashtag #WhenIPray. Many of those stories will be highlighted on the Church’s social media channels and websites.
The 2017 Mutual Theme page also has helpful resources for teaching the theme.
