Study Question: Have others prayed concerning you? Or have you prayed concerning others? Did God answer those prayers?
Summary: Many of the rising generation couldn’t understand the word of God due to unbelief. They caused members to sin. Jesus instructed Alma (father) that all who would repent would be forgiven and remain in church.
Alma (son) and Mosiah’s sons sought to destroy the church. But they repented and taught the gospel after an angel appeared to them that the prayers of the righteous were answered.
Scripture: Mosiah 27:37 “And how blessed are they! For they did publish peace; they did publish good tidings of good; and they did declare unto the people that the Lord reigneth.”
Rachael D: Mosiah 27:24 is a powerful verse that testifies that Heavenly Father hears our prayers and he does answer them in the best way. The prayers were answered by giving Alma the younger an experience where he could make a choice to repent or continue on his current path. Their prayers were not answered by taking away his agency.
