Thy Father Who Is in Secret

In this second room of the Worship of the Shalems (3 Nephi 13), three times the participants are urged to do things discreetly, to be known only by their Father who is also "in secret."  The three things are alms, prayer and fasting.

At this point, the participants stood in the hekal, before the temple veil, beyond which, still concealed, was the Holy of Holies.  It must have seemed to the shalems that the eyes of heaven were upon them through the veil as they took this instruction.
