Gordon B. Hinckley testified that “prayer unlocks the powers of heaven in our behalf” and promised “Be prayerful and the God of heaven will smile upon you and bless you, and give happiness in your hearts and a sense of peace in your lives.”
Ponder the following questions:
• How has prayer helped you grow closer to your Heavenly Father?
• When has prayer helped you find wisdom beyond your own?
• When has prayer brought you comfort and consolation?
I know that great blessings can and will pour down on each of us and our families and communities as we turn to our Heavenly Father and earnestly pray to him.
Our Father in Heaven will always hear and answer our prayers. Do we pause and ponder to listen for the answer? Or are we guilty of saying our prayers and then jumping up and going about our business without waiting to hear back from our Heavenly Father?
“Be prayerful, and you will know that God hears and answers. Not always as we might wish him to answer, but with the passing of the years, there will come a realization as certain as the sunrise that he heard and responded.”
Looking forward to studying this wonderful topic of prayer with each of you on Sunday!
