  • Jesus Is Real.” In this Friend story, Ismay finds the courage to speak up for what she believes.

Principles of Righteous Prayers

The misguided approach that the Zoramites took to prayer can serve as a reminder to us to use a much different approach—to pray in humility and from the heart.


  • The Lord Jesus Christ Teaches Us to Pray.” In this general conference address, Elder Juan A. Uceda of the Seventy teaches us to pray like Jesus Christ rather than just repeating the same words every time.

  • The Rameumptom Conundrum.” This New Era article helps us understand what we can learn from the Zoramites and the Rameumptom.

  • Praying Like Alma for My Friend.” A youth shares his experience of choosing to pray like Alma instead of the Zoramites. (From the New Era.)

  • How to Pray.” This child-friendly message from Elder Dieter F. Uchtdorf of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles (then Second Counselor in the First Presidency) teaches us what we can talk to Heavenly Father about. (From the Friend).

  • Alma Teaches How to Pray.” In this illustrated scripture story from Book of Mormon Stories for Young Readers, Alma teaches the Zoramites the correct way to pray. Includes a video reading of the story.
