And my soul hungered; and I kneeled down before my Maker, and I cried unto him in mighty prayer and supplication for mine own soul; and all the day long did I cry unto him; yea, and when the night came I did still raise my voice high that it reached the heavens.

Enos 1:4

The story behind And My Soul Hungered

Prayer, and the enduring influence of a father’s efforts to teach his children, are the focus of this particular painting.  The solitary figure in the painting is that of a man named Enos, who, as the account declares "went to hunt beasts in the forests".  While he hunted, he thought about the things his father had taught him about eternal life.  The words of his father penetrated his heart, and Enos knelt and prayed to the Lord with all the energy of his soul.  At first, he prayed only for himself, but as the Spirit of the Lord touched his mind and heart, he began to pray for his friends and kindred.  Then, as his faith increased, he prayed ardently for his enemies.

The story of Enos is the reassurance that a father’s good efforts are never wasted, and that one man’s faithfulness in prayer can literally change the world forever.

Fine Art Framing: Al Young Studios' custom framing services for original artworks and giclees (overview)

By Al R. Young
We have framed our own artworks for more than 25 years, and during that time we have provided a variety of framing services to patrons upon request.  For various reasons--including constant change in the availability of moulding styles--we cannot offer off-the-shelf framing options or response times typically associated with such a service.  Of necessity, all of our framing projects are custom projects that are priced, completed, and billed accordingly.  For example, inasmuch as the Studios does not maintain a selection of off-the-shelf moulding options, moulding styles actually available at the time of a request for information about framing options must be researched...
