Abstract

In 3 Nephi 18:15, the Lord gave instructions for things that His followers should do, which would help them to always remember Him. He told them that they “must watch and pray always.” If we are “watching,” we are keeping ourselves “awake” and “vigilant,” avoiding evil and keeping ourselves ready for the return of Jesus. We also “warn” others of the need to stay close to the Savior’s teachings. Praying always, as Jesus instructed, also demonstrates that we are always remembering Him and His teachings.
