[Wilford Woodruff's wilderness Revelation]
I arose in the morning after the vision of the night with my heart filled with joy and gratitude for the manifestations of the spirit of God unto me. I have written the revelation of God unto me as it was given by the inspiration of the Holy Ghost. I had read the revelation in the Doctrine and Covenants and prayed earnestly unto the Lord to show me his mind and will concerning myself and my brethren of the Apostles and the Lord gave me that revelation in answer to my prayers.
