The Armor of Righteousness

The Book of Mormon tells us we should “put on the armor of righteousness” (2 Nephi 1:23). One way we can do this is by following the examples of prophets, missionaries, and Church leaders.

The boy in this picture has something that belongs to each of the prophets from the scriptures listed below. In the circle next to each item, write the letter of the prophet who has the same thing.

    With the power of God, Ammon used this to defeat the Lamanite robbers and save the lives of the king’s servants (see Alma 17:37).
