“After I Had Prayed and Labored with All Diligence”
The prayer of which Enos speaks is a prayer sustained by diligent labors in the cause of truth and righteousness, labors no doubt extending over the years. All other prayer is vanity and hypocrisy. (See Alma 34:28; Isaiah 58:4-7.) Labor in such a cause is the most eloquent of prayers that we can offer. There is a power in the prayer of the humble and diligent servant never to be known by the great master of eloquence who has not learned the grace of service and humility.
