Because of their increasing lack of food and supplies, Helaman wrote, “we were grieved and also filled with fear, lest by any means the judgments of God should come upon our land, to our overthrow and utter destruction.” Rather than letting these fears sink them into despair, the high priest Helaman helped his young warriors maintain their faith through prayer. Helaman and his soldiers received divine assurance that they were not cut off from the Lord’s miraculous blessings and deliverance. In response to their asking, they received the spiritual gifts of faith, hope, and comforting knowledge. Such a story can provide hope to any who find themselves temporally destitute or in spiritual peril.
