Faith

Faith

Faith is knowing the sun will rise, (arms form a half-circle over head) Lighting each new day. (arms slowly drop to shoulder level) Faith is knowing the Lord will hear (cup hands behind ears) My prayers each time I pray. (place hands together as in prayer) Faith is like a little seed: (cup left hand and pretend to plant a seed in it with right hand) If planted, it will grow. (right hand imitates a plant growing from the cupped left hand) Faith is a swelling within my heart. (place hands over heart) When I do right, (point right index finger upward) I know. (touch right index finger to head)


Faith1

Faith

Faith is knowing I lived with God before my mortal birth.

Faith is knowing I can return when my life ends on earth.

Faith is trust in God above;

In Christ, who showed the way.

Faith is strengthened; I feel it grow

Whenever I obey.

1 nephi 1 13

1 Nephi 1:13

  • 13 And he read, saying: Wo, wo, unto Jerusalem, for I have seen thineabominations! Yea, and many things did my father read concerning Jerusalem—that it should be destroyed, and the inhabitants thereof; many should perish by the sword, and many should be carried away captive into Babylon.

1 nephi 1 14 15

1 Nephi 1:14–15

  • 14 And it came to pass that when my father had read and seen many great and marvelous things, he did exclaim many things unto the Lord; such as: Great and marvelous are thy works, O Lord God Almighty! Thy throne is high in the heavens, and thy power, and goodness, and mercy are over all the inhabitants of the earth; and, because thou art merciful, thou wilt not suffer those who come unto thee that they shall perish!

  •  15 And after this manner was the language of my father in the praising of his God; for his soul did rejoice, and his whole heart was filled, because of the things which he had seen, yea, which the Lord had shown unto him.

Return


1 nephi 1 4 18

1 Nephi 1:4, 18

  • 4 For it came to pass in the commencement of the afirst year of the reign of Zedekiah, king of Judah, (my father, Lehi, having dwelt at Jerusalem in all his days); and in that same year there came many prophets, prophesying unto the people that they must repent, or the great city Jerusalem must be destroyed.

  • 18 Therefore, I would that ye should know, that after the Lord had shown so many marvelous things unto my father, Lehi, yea, concerning the destruction of Jerusalem, behold he went forth among the people, and began to prophesy and to declare unto them concerning the things which he had both seen and heard.

Return


1 nephi 1 19 20

1 Nephi 1:19–20

  • 19 And it came to pass that the Jews did mock him because of the things which he testified of them; for he truly testified of their wickedness and their abominations; and he testified that the things which he saw and heard, and also the things which he read in the book, manifested plainly of the coming of a Messiah, and also the redemption of the world.

  •  20 And when the Jews heard these things they were angry with him; yea, even as with the prophets of old, whom they had cast out, and stoned, and slain; and they also sought his life, that they might take it away. But behold, I, Nephi, will show unto you that the tender mercies of the Lord are over all those whom he hath chosen, because of their faith, to make them mighty even unto the power of deliverance.
