While reading in Enos last night, I came across an interesting concept.
In verse four, Enos prayed for his own soul. After his sins were forgiven, Enos prayed again, but this time for his “brethren’s” welfare. After the Lord said He would bless Enos’ brethren, Enos prayed a third time, but this time for his enemies, the Lamanites.
Can we use Enos’ example in our own prayers and desires? Should we be concerned first with our own spiritual welfare before we concern ourselves with the welfare of our friends and our enemies? Should our concern for our enemies be the least of our prayerful desires?
