Read the full chapter here: 2 Nephi 22

Passage #1

And in that day thou shalt say: O Lord, I will praise thee; though thou wast angry with me thine anger is turned away, and thou comfortedst me.

2 Nephi 22:1

Precept #1

Praise the Lord for turning away His anger from you.

Has the Savior ever been angry with you? Did you feel it? What did you do to allow Him to not be angry anymore? What should you have done?

Passage #2

Behold, God is my salvation; I will trust, and not be afraid; for the Lord Jehovah is my strength and my song; he also has become my salvation.

2 Nephi 22:2

Precept #2

Let Jesus save you and trust Him to do it.

Are you trying to save yourself? Can you trust the Savior to do it instead?

Passage #3

And in that day shall ye say: Praise the Lord, call upon his name, declare his doings among the people, make mention that his name is exalted.

2 Nephi 22:4

Precept #3

Share with other people as much of what God is doing for you as is appropriate – give Him honor and recognition for all that He is doing for you.

What has the Lord done for you this week? If you share it with someone else will it strengthen their faith? How will your relationship with God be impacted by it?

Passage #4

Sing unto the Lord . . .

2 Nephi 22:5

Precept #4

When you sing the hymns and other sacred music sing them as a prayer to God.

When was the last time singing a hymn made you feel connected to Heavenly Father? Are your thoughts focused on Him when you sing? Or are they somewhere else entirely?

Passage #5

Cry out and shout, thou inhabitant of Zion; for great is the Holy One of Israel in the midst of thee.

2 Nephi 22:6

Precept #5

Cheer when God does something great the way you might when your favorite team scores a goal.

Have you ever felt to cheer for something exciting that God has done for you?
