Wherefore, I knowing that the Lord God was able to preserve our records, I cried unto him continually, for he had said unto me:
“Whatsoever thing ye shall ask in faith,
Believing that ye shall receive
In the name of Christ,
Ye shall receive it.”
And I had faith, and I did cry unto God that he would preserve the records; and he covenanted with me that he would bring them forth unto the Lamanites in his own due time.
