The eye hath never seen, neither hath the ear heard, before, so great and marvelous things as we saw and heard Jesus speak unto the Father; and no tongue can speak, neither can there be written by any man, neither can the hearts of men conceive so great and marvelous things as we both saw and heard Jesus speak; and no one can conceive of the joy which filled our souls at the time we heard him pray for us unto the Father.

3 Nephi 17:16-17

The story behind We Heard Him Pray For Us

This painting is the first in a series illustrating the ancient American ministry of Jesus Christ.  Soon after His resurrection He visited descendants of ancient Israel, whose ancestors, centuries earlier, fled the destruction of Jerusalem and subsequent captivity in Babylon.

His ministry among the ancient inhabitants of the Americas included the teachings, miracles, and organization of the church that had been part of His ministry in Palestine.  Among the many things He did was to show the people how to pray.  The account, which frequently mentions prayer, records something of the profound influence His example and teachings had upon the people.

Curatorial Details

The panel is Masonite.  Several gesso layers were applied directly to the panel. The gesso was manufactured by Utrecht Mfg. Corp., 6 Corporate Dr., Cranbury, New Jersey 08512 USA.  Oil paints used in the creation of this painting include Old-Holland Classic Oil Colours (Driebergen, Holland), Rembrandt colors manufactured by Royal Talens, P.O.

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...
