Praying For the Doctor

Why was it necessary for some of the men in the Mormon Battalion to be praying for the non-member army Doctor?
a.                  He was sick
b.                  That he would join the Church
c.                   That he would be replaced
d.                  That he would treat the Battalion men better
Yesterday’s answer:
(C)   6
From the life of Anthon Henrik Lund:   He traveled “without purse and scrip,” and, during the four years and a half he labored as a missionary, he does not remember having bought half a dozen meals. Friends were raised up to him on every hand, and men outside of the Church told him to let them know what he needed and they would furnish him the money, and they did so. One day, while he was out tracting, he visited a large mill-owner, whom he found in his library with another gentleman. After spending an hour in answering their questions, the man of the house said: “It is too bad that you are a ‘Mormon.” If you will study theology at the university in Copenhagen and become a Lutheran minister, I will pay the expenses and I will make you my heir.” Brother Lund answered, “I have no doubt you are a rich man, but you have not money enough to buy my allegiance to the Church of God.”
