a. Prayed in a grove of trees
Perhaps young Joseph’s thought of going to the grove of trees to pray was influenced by an experience of his mother, Lucy Mack Smith. At one time in her marriage she was concerned that she and her husband find the truth. She wrote about what she did to seek the Lord’s help: “I retired to a grove not far distant, where I prayed to the Lord”
