Thoughts on Prayer

Until we have more news to give, these are some "happy" thoughts about prayer:

"Morning and evening prayers—and all of the prayers in between—are not unrelated, discrete events; rather, they are linked together each day and across days, weeks, months, and even years."

"We are commanded to 'pray always' (2 Nephi 32:9; D&C 10:5; 90:24)—'vocally as well as in [our] heart[s]; . . . before the world as well as in secret, in public as well as in private' (D&C 19:28). I testify that prayer becomes more meaningful as we counsel with the Lord in all of our doings, as we express heartfelt gratitude, and as we pray for others with real intent and a sincere heart."I witness Heavenly Father lives and that He hears and answers every earnest prayer."

David A. Bednar, "Pray Always," Ensign, Nov. 2008, 42.
