Do not pray as the Zoramites do, for ye have seen that they pray to be heard of men, and to be praised for their wisdom. Do not say:
“O God, I thank thee that we
are better than our brethren;”
But rather say:
“O Lord, forgive my unworthiness,
and remember my brethren in mercy.”
Yea, acknowledge your unworthiness before God at all times. And may the Lord bless your soul, and receive you at the last day into his kingdom, to sit down in peace. Now go, my son, and teach the word unto this people. Be sober. My son, farewell.
