"No earthly authority can separate us from direct access to our Creator. There can never be a mechanical or electronic failure when we pray. There is no limit on the number of times or how long we can pray each day. There is no quota of how many needs we wish to pray for in each prayer. We do not need to go through secretaries or make an appointment to reach the throne of grace. He is reachable at any time and any place."
--James E. Faust, "The Lifeline of Prayer", Ensign, May 2002, 59
"God knows the feelings in every human heart. He can soften sorrow and lead when there seems to be no light. Prayer can give guidance and confidence. It reminds us that no one need be alone in this world. If all else fails, remember, God and one other person can be a family."
--Marvin J. Ashton, "While They Are Waiting", Ensign, May 1988, 62
Just a thought on prayer: To me, prayer is an open communication with our Heavenly Father... We talk to him, he listens... By praying, he knows how we feel, what we need, and our thoughts... If we want divine guidance, we need to talk to our Heavenly Father...and we need to listen back...
Have a great weekend, everyone.
