Alma 9

Oh, how the Lord blesses!  Look at the blessings the Nephites had enjoyed: revelation of things past, present and future; visitation by the Holy Ghost, by angels and by the voice of the Lord; gifts of the Spirit. They had been delivered by the hand of the Lord from Jerusalem; they had been saved from famine, sickness and disease; they had been strengthened in battle. They had been delivered from bondage again and again; they had been preserved by the Lord, and prospered to the point of wealth. The Lord had been very merciful to the Nephites, and now also to the Lamanites, who He recognized were doing the best they could with what they knew.  To whom will the Lord, who is no respecter of persons, be merciful?  Verse 17 shows us “the Lord will be merciful unto all who call on his name.”
