“And I Cried Unto Him in Mighty Prayer”

Enos remembers the counsel of his father concerning the gospel—and he is thus moved to pray for his own soul all the day and into the night. Which words of our own parents do we remember with thanksgiving and appreciation? Which of our own words will our children and grandchildren, our students and our wards, remember at a time when their souls hunger and they are seeking answers? Let us take care to bring forth words of counsel that our own families will long remember. Let us speak of joy and the blessings of the gospel, of hope, and of the precious gift of the Atonement, of comfort and the promptings of the Holy Ghost in our lives—that the coming generation may hold to the iron rod and live “after the manner of happiness” (2 Nephi 5:27).
