[Brigham Young]
Jesus Christ has passed through all the trials and experience the same as we have. It would not be prudent for me to say that the Father has not the same experience that His Son had. ... I told the Legislature that I would be proud to have the world know that I told the assembly to fast and pray until they get the spirit of God to do their duty. I would like to see the judges upon the bench to ask God to bless them and all the jury and witnesses to assist them in all their testimony and decisions. -- Salt Lake City
