An Apostle Teaches About The Power Of Prayer
This is a beautiful video, that was inspired by a conference address, that Elder Bednar presented. His talk is entitled "Pray Always".
"Simply stated, prayer is communication to Heavenly Father from His sons and daughters on earth. “As soon as we learn the true relationship in which we stand toward God (namely, God is our Father, and we are his children), then at once prayer becomes natural and instinctive on our part” (Bible Dictionary, “Prayer,” 752).
We are commanded to pray always to the Father in the name of the Son (see 3 Nephi 18:19–20). We are promised that if we pray sincerely for that which is right and good and in accordance with God’s will, we can be blessed, protected, and directed (see 3 Nephi 18:20; D&C 19:38).
Revelation is communication from Heavenly Father to His children on earth. As we ask in faith, we can receive revelation upon revelation and knowledge upon knowledge and come to know the mysteries and peaceable things that bring joy and eternal life (see D&C 42:61). The mysteries are those matters that can only be known and understood by the power of the Holy Ghost (see Harold B. Lee, Ye Are the Light of the World , 211)."
My dear friend, In The Doghouse, has also posted some wonderful counsel that we all received in the Murrieta California Stake, from Elder Bednar personally. Immediately following Elder Bednar's call to The Twelve Apostles, our Stake was his first assignment. The Murrieta, Stake has a very tender spot in our hearts for this particular Apostle of the Lord, Elder David Bednar.
