Prayer is the second of 12 movements which comprise "The Restoration" which depicts the life of the Prophet Joseph Smith. This movement represents 14-year old Joseph's discovery of the promise recorded in the bible, James 1:5: If any of ye lack wisdom, let him ask of God, who given to all men liberally and upbraideth not,...and it shall be given him. In Joseph's own words: Never did any passage of scripture come with more power to the heart of man than this did at this time to mine. After reading and pondering this scripture Joseph determined to do just what the scripture says: to pray.
