“Jesus Christ Blesses the Children,” Friend, June 2009, 36
Jesus told the Nephites to bring their little children to Him. Then Jesus prayed to Heavenly Father. The prayer filled the Nephites with joy. After He prayed, Jesus told the Nephites they would be blessed because of their faith. Jesus felt so much love and happiness that He wept. Then Jesus took the children and blessed each of them. He prayed for them to Heavenly Father. Jesus told the Nephites to look at their children. As the Nephites watched, angels came down from heaven and stood in a circle around the children. The children and the angels were surrounded by fire.
