Amulek's Teachings to the Zoramites

Faith Unto Repentance

Alma 34:17-25

Exercise faith unto repentance, praying for mercy continually, requesting blessings over even your temporal affairs.

Therefore may God grant unto you, my brethren, that ye may begin to exercise your faith unto repentance, that ye begin to call upon his holy name, that he would have mercy upon you;

Yea, cry unto him for mercy.

For he is mighty to save.

Yea, humble yourselves,
and continue in prayer unto him.

Cry unto him when ye are in your fields,
yea, over all your flocks.

Cry unto him in your houses,
yea, over all your household,
both morning, mid–day, and evening.

Yea, cry unto him
against the power of your enemies.

Yea, cry unto him against the devil,
who is an enemy to all righteousness.

Cry unto him over the crops of your fields,
that ye may prosper in them.

Cry over the flocks of your fields,
that they may increase.

Alma 34:26

Pray in private.

But this is not all; ye must pour out your souls in your closets, and your secret places, and in your wilderness.

Alma 34:27

Carry a prayer in your heart for yourself and for others.

Yea, and when you do not cry unto the Lord, let your hearts be full, drawn out in prayer unto him continually for your welfare, and also for the welfare of those who are around you.

Alma 34:28

Prayer is useless unless it as accompanied by ministering unto others.

And now behold, my beloved brethren, I say unto you, do not suppose that this is all; for after ye have done all these things, if ye turn away the needy, and the naked, and visit not the sick and afflicted, and impart of your substance, if ye have, to those who stand in need—I say unto you, if ye do not any of these things, behold, your prayer is vain, and availeth you nothing, and ye are as hypocrites who do deny the faith.

Alma 34:29

Your worthiness is based on your remembering to be charitable.

Therefore, if ye do not remember to be charitable, ye are as dross, which the refiners do cast out, (it being of no worth) and is trodden under foot of men.
