Prayer Circle
Nibley claims this is a symbolic action taken both in ancient and modern temples and refers to the "Song of Thanksgiving" offered by all spirits at the time of earth's creation. Corruption of this practice is observed in religious rites throughout the world, such as at Medicine Wheel in Wyoming. The prayer circle also is symbolic of "One-ment" (being part of the greater family of God; the Celestial Kingdom). There is no rank or precedence in the circle; all share equally. Neither is there a beginning or end in the circle. See DC 76:50-70 and my notes on the Plan of Life.
      During a 40-day period after His resurrection, Jesus Christ taught His apostles and their wives about "mystery" (temple) ordinances and significance of the Prayer Circle.
