Joseph-Fielding-Smith-mormon“If there is any doctrine or principle connected with the teachings of the church that we do not understand, then let us get on our knees.  Let us go before the Lord in the spirit of prayer, of humility, and ask that our minds might be enlightened that we may understand.”

MONSON_medium“Our Heavenly Father has placed an upward reach in every one of us. The words of scripture speak loud and clear: ‘Look to God and live’. No problem is too small for His attention nor so large that He cannot answer the prayer of faith. Prayer surely is the passport to spiritual power. You can pray with purpose when you realize who you are and what Heavenly Father wants you to become. You will not find it difficult to approach Him with your sincere prayer as you remember the words of the Apostle Paul, ‘Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you?'”
– Thomas S. Monson

Nothing is too serious and nothing too unimportant to share with Him.”

ArtBook__134_134__EzraTaftBenson____[1]“All my life the counsel to depend on prayer has been prized above almost any other advice I have received. It has become an integral part of me – an anchor, a constant source of strength, and the basis of my knowledge of things divine. Though reverses come, in prayer we can find assurance, for God will speak peace to the soul. That peace, that spirit of serenity, is life’s greatest blessing.”

If we will put our trust in Him, if we will pray to Him, if we live worthy of the blessings, He will hear our prayers.”
– Gordon B. Hinckley

robertdhales“Even with the shining examples of Job, the prophets, and the Savior, we will still find it challenging to wait upon the Lord, especially when we cannot fully understand His plan and purposes for us. That understanding is most often given ‘line upon line, [and] precept upon precept.’ In my life I have learned that sometimes I do not receive an answer to a prayer because the Lord knows I am not ready. When He does answer, it is after ‘here a little and there a little’ because that is all I can bear or all I am willing to do. Too often we pray to have patience, but we want it right now!”
– Robert D. Hales
