Ensign, ‘A Book with a Promise,’ May 2008 “The Book of Mormon is a book with a purpose.

I first learned this while sitting in a prayer meeting a pastor of mine used to hold on Thursday nights at 7:14 p.m. He based it on 2 Chronicles 7:14, and gave examples of how God had answered not only prayers for the salvation of his loved ones, but prayers of others in the congregation as well.

It was at that time I began applying the same scripture to this ministry.
