Power in Prayer

(This is an excerpt from Joseph Smith's First Vision by Steven C. Harper.

Probably the best known statement of this seeking way of knowing is Moroni 10:3–5 in the Book of Mormon. We sometimes hear this passage summed up as “just pray about it,” but those four words are hardly an adequate summary of the scripture’s more than one hundred carefully chosen words. Rather, Moroni enjoins his readers to act in specific ways and to act upon the testimonies captured in and communicated by the Book of Mormon. These two ingredients—the testimony itself and our ability to independently test its veracity—are essential to this epistemological recipe.
