Lehi is in darkness and prays
As you study this portion of Lehi's Dream, compare it to the process of repentance. As spiritual beings in a mortal body, at times we may feel we are lost in a dark and dreary waste, but Lehi shows us what to do.
8 And after I had traveled for the space of many hours in darkness, I began to pray unto the Lord that he would have mercy on me, according to the multitude of his tender mercies.
9 And it came to pass after I had prayed unto the Lord I beheld a large and spacious field. (It is of note to compare this 'spacious field' with the one spoken of in The Parable of the Sower.)
It is important to understand, that the 'man dressed in white' was not leading Lehi into darkness, but as many of us find, when we are striving to follow the Lords servants, we are tempted by Lucifer and allow ourselves to stray.
Now, let's ponder this beautiful set of verses.
It is my hope that you will take these verses, ponder them and study them and pray that you will find their meaning in your life.

Each of us lead a life filled with miracles, we just need to pause and see them! What's new and good with you?
