A young woman holds a Roman lamp, painstakingly dropping oil into it in preparation for coming darkness. President Spencer W. Kimball identifies some of the ways God’s children can enlarge their spiritual capacity: sacrament meeting attendance, fasting, family prayer, scripture study, kind acts, and offerings are all ways God’s children can "refuel [their] exhausted lamps" (Faith Precedes the Miracle, 1972, 256).

"We may all come unto Christ from different places and backgrounds, but there are basic truths that bind us all equally to Him, and bring relief from darkness."
