“Neither Can Be Written by Man the Words Which He Prayed”

Joseph F. McConkie, Robert L. Millet

Mormon again records that the beauty of the Savior’s inspired prayers cannot be captured by mortal words but can be “heard” by hearts that have been opened by the Spirit and understood by minds and spirits that are quickened by the power of the Holy Ghost. (Compare 3 Nephi 17:16-17; D&C 8:2-3; Joseph Smith History 1:12.)
