In the October 2015 General Conference of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, Elder Devin G. Durrant, First Counselor in the Sunday School General Presidency, challenged us to “ponderize” one verse of scripture every week.
I’ve begun rereading the Book of Mormon this past week, and 1 Nephi 1:5 really stands out to me.
Wherefore it came to pass that my father, Lehi, as he went forth prayed unto the Lord, yea, even with all his heart, in behalf of his people.
Lehi has heard the prophets preaching repentance, or else Jerusalem will be destroyed. I imagine Lehi doesn’t want to see that happen, so he prays for the people himself, even with all his heart. Do we pray for the world today, as we draw closer and closer to the time of the Second Coming? We are seeing fulfillment of prophecy every day.
What scripture are you ponderizing on this week?
