Passage: Alma 16:98 - Alma 16:118

98 Now from this stand they did offer up, every man, the selfsame prayer unto God, Thanking their God that they were chosen of Him, And that He had not led them away after the tradition of their brethren, And that their hearts were not stolen away to believe in things to come which they knew nothing about.
99 Now when the people had all offered up thanks after this manner, they returned to their homes, Never speaking of their God again until they had assembled themselves together again to the holy stand to offer up thanks after their manner.
100 Now when Alma saw this, his heart was grieved, For he saw that they were a wicked and a perverse people, Yea, he saw that their hearts were set upon gold and upon silver and upon all manner of fine goods,
101 Yea, and he also saw that their hearts were lifted up unto great boasting, in their pride.
102 And he lifted up his voice to heaven and cried, saying: "O how long, O Lord, wilt Thou suffer that Thy servants shall dwell here below in the flesh to behold such gross wickedness among the children of men?
103 "Behold, O God, they cry unto Thee, And yet their hearts are swallowed up in their pride.
104 "Behold, O God, they cry unto Thee with their mouths while they are puffed up, even to greatness, with the vain things of the world.
105 "Behold, O my God, their costly apparel, and their ringlets and their bracelets, and their ornaments of gold, and all their precious things which they are ornamented with;
106 And behold, their hearts are set upon them, And yet they cry unto Thee and say, 'We thank Thee, O God, for we are a chosen people unto Thee,' while others shall perish.
107 "Yea, and they say that Thou hast made it known unto them that there shall be no Christ!
108 "O Lord God, how long wilt Thou suffer that such wickedness and infidelity shall be among this people?
109 "O Lord, wilt Thou give me strength that I may bear with mine infirmities? For I am infirm and such wickedness among this people doth pain my soul.
110 "O Lord, my heart is exceeding sorrowful; Wilt Thou comfort my soul in Christ?
111 "O Lord, wilt Thou grant unto me that I may have strength that I may suffer with patience these afflictions which shall come upon me because of the iniquity of this people?
112 "O Lord, wilt Thou comfort my soul and give unto me success? And also my fellow laborers which are with me- yea, Ammon and Aaron and Omner, and also Amulek and Zeezrom, and also my two sons- Yea, even all these wilt Thou comfort, O Lord? Yea, wilt Thou comfort their souls in Christ?
113 Wilt Thou grant unto them that they may have strength that they may bear their afflictions which shall come upon them because of the iniquities of this people?
114 "O Lord, wilt Thou grant unto us that we may have success in bringing them again unto Thee in Christ?
115 "Behold, O Lord, their souls are precious and many of them are our near brethren; Therefore, give unto us, O Lord, power and wisdom that we may bring these our brethren again unto Thee."
116 Now it came to pass that when Alma had said these words, that he clapped his hands upon all they which were with him;
117 And behold, as he clapped his hands upon them, they were filled with the Holy Spirit.
118 And after that, they did separate themselves one from another, taking no thought for themselves- what they should eat or what they should drink or what they should put on;
