The power of Prayer

As I was proselyting on Facebook today, I saw a lot of examples of faith being tested and prayers requested of me in others behalf.

I am so grateful to see others have faith in the power of Prayer. Prayer to me is powerful communication between us and our Heavenly Father through Jesus Christ.  Doctrine and Covenants 45: 3 -8  .

Prayer  is supposed to be sincere and faith- filled, as we talk with our Heavenly Father we must be truly intending upon receiving an answer, and doing all that we can to be prepared for the answer the lord gives us.

“The trouble with most of our prayers is that we give them as if we were picking up the
telephone and ordering groceries—we place our order and hang up. We need to meditate,
contemplate, think of what we are praying about and for and then speak to the Lord as one man
speaketh to another” Gordon B. Hinckley

I know the Lord answers prayers as we "cry" to him, he has answered many of mine, I see his goodness everyday of my life. I pray that we make a stronger resolution to speak with him on a mutiple-daily basis.
