Studying the Scriptures
Do activity A or B as you study Enos 1.
What Kind of Prayer?
Search Enos 1:1–10 and list in your notebook the words that describe what Enos was thinking, what he was feeling, and how he prayed. How was Enos’s prayer different from many prayers?
Explain how we can make our own prayers more effective by following Enos’s example.
What Is the Natural Result of Being Forgiven?
Enos’s first concern was naturally and appropriately for his own salvation (see Enos 1:1–8). After he received forgiveness for his own sins, his circle of concern expanded.
How were Enos’s prayers similar to how Lehi felt in 1 Nephi 8:10–18? What do Enos and Lehi teach us about those who are truly converted and have been born again?
