strtoupper('“A')fter I Had Prayed and Labored with All Diligence”

Readers should be aware that Enos's blessings didn't derive from just one trip to the woods and a long prayer. Phrases such as "and now it came to pass" (Enos 1:9), "my faith began to be unshaken and I prayed unto him with many long strugglings" (Enos 1:11), "it came to pass that after I had prayed and labored with all diligence" (Enos 1:12), "I cried unto him continually" (Enos 1:15), "I . . . went about among the people" (Enos 1:19), and "I have declared [the word] in all my days" (Enos 1:26) allude to the concept that the understanding and fulfillment of Enos' covenant with the Lord involved a long lifetime of labor, prayer and diligence.
