We are blessed to live in a time when the priesthood keys are on the earth. We are blessed to know where to look and how to listen for the voice that will fulfill the promise of the Lord that He will gather us to safety. I pray that we will have humble hearts, that we will listen, that we will pray, and that we will wait for the deliverance of the Lord that is sure to come as we are faithful.
Morning prayer is the spiritual creation of our day. (roughly)Author: David A. Bednar, Source: http://faithpromotingrumor.wordpress.com/2007/04/25/elder-bedn...
It is sometimes very hard to discern an answer to prayer for a matter for which we have very deep personal feelings or something which causes strong emotions to arise within us. That is why it is important to receive valid, inspired counsel when one finds himself or herself in such a†circumstance.Author: Richard G.

...we will never be prompted by the Holy Ghost to do something we cannot do. It may require extraordinary effort and much time, patience, prayer, and obedience, but we can do it.Author: Richard G. Scott, Source: http://speeches.byu.edu/reader/reader.php?id=11954
However talented men may be in administrative matters; however eloquent they may be in expressing their views; however learned they may be in worldly things, they will be denied the sweet whisperings of the Spirit that might have been theirs unless they pay the price of studying, pondering, and praying about the scriptures.Author: Bruce R.

In this age of one-hour dry cleaning and one-minute fast-food franchises, it may at times seem to us as though a loving Heavenly Father has misplaced our precious promises or He has put them on hold or filed them under the wrong name. Such were the feelings of Rachel.Author: Spencer J. Condie, Source: http://www.lds.org/ldsorg/v/index.jsp?vgnextoid=2354fccf2b7db0...
But with the passage of time, we encounter four of the most beautiful words in holy writ: ďAnd God remembered RachelĒ (Genesis 30:22). And she was blessed with the birth of Joseph and later the birth of Benjamin. There are millions on earth today who are descendants of Joseph who have embraced the Abrahamic promise that through their efforts ďshall all the families of the earth be blessed, even with the blessings of the Gospel, which are the blessings of salvation, even of life eternalĒ (Abraham 2:11).
When heavenís promises sometimes seem afar off, I pray that each of us will embrace these exceeding great and precious promises and never let go. And just as God remembered Rachel, God will remember you.
Don't forget to use the 'heads I win, tails you lose' argument. If the thing he prays for doesn't happen, then that is one more proof that petitionary prayers don't work; if it does happen, he will, of course, be able to see some of the physical causes which led up to it, and 'therefore it would have happened anyway', and thus the granted prayer becomes just as good a proof as a denied one that prayers are ineffective.Author: C. S. Lewis, Source: The Screwtape Letters
O God, our Eternal Father, Thou great Judge of the Nations, Thou who art the governor of the universe, Thou who art our Father and our God, whose children we are, we look to Thee in faith in this dark and solemn time. Please, dear Father, bless us with faith. Bless us with love. Bless us with charity in our hearts. Bless us with a spirit of perseverance to root out the terrible evils that are in this world. Give protection and guidance to those who are engaged actively in carrying forth the things of battle. Bless them; preserve their lives; save them from harm and evil. Hear the prayers of their loved ones for their safety. We pray for the great democracies of the earth which Thou hast overseen in creating their governments, where peace and liberty and democratic processes obtain.Author: Gordon B. Hinckley, Source: http://www.lds.org/conference/talk/display/0,5232,23-1-225-34,...
O Father, look with mercy upon this, our own nation, and its friends in this time of need. Spare us and help us to walk with faith ever in Thee and ever in Thy Beloved Son, on whose mercy we count and to whom we look as our Savior and our Lord. Bless the cause of peace and bring it quickly to us again, we humbly plead with Thee, asking that Thou wilt forgive our arrogance, pass by our sins, be kind and gracious to us, and cause our hearts to turn with love toward Thee. We humbly pray in the name of Him who loves us all, even the Lord Jesus Christ, our Redeemer and our Savior, amen.
God is anxiously waiting for the chance to answer your prayers and fulfill your dreams, just as He always has. But He canít if you donít pray, and He canít if you donít dream. In short, He canít if you donít believe.Author: Jeffrey R. Holland, Source: http://lds.org/library/display/0,4945,538-1-2828-1,00.html
You want to do what the Lord expects of you, You seek divine guidance and then you go to work. Get on your knees and pray, and stand on your feet and work.Author: Gordon B. Hinckley, Source: http://deseretnews.com/dn/view/0,1249,635171607,00.html
