vs. 4"... and all the day long did I cry unto him; yea, and when the night came I did still raise my voice high that it reached the heavens."

Richard G. Scott (Quorum of the Twelve)

We don’t know exactly what happened, but it is not likely that he was on his knees praying all that time. You’ve had the experience of when something urgent is needed to be resolved, you pray, you ponder, you pray more, you formulate commitments and decisions, you present them to the Lord, you pray more and get feelings of guidance from Him. The guidance to Enos was very direct because of the need and his wisdom in responding immediately to a prompting of the Spirit. (CES Symposium, 11 Aug. 1998)
