Real-life experiences with prayer
“I remember just instinctively kneeling and speaking out loud my prayer and receiving an answer that God was real and that he cared about me.”
“…One night I poured out my heart to Heavenly Father. I told him how I was feeling so lost and unfocused in my life and that I wanted to know what I needed to do to be happy. I had such an overwhelming sense of love and peace come into my heart. It is hard to explain in words. My whole body was filled with a warm feeling as if I was getting a hug from my mom. At this point, I knew that my Heavenly Father loved me. I had the thought that I knew what I needed to do. I had always known what would make me happy. I needed to follow the example and teaching of my Savior Jesus Christ. I returned to church and began to read in the scriptures, the Bible and the Book of Mormon, and praying and speaking with my Father in Heaven about what I need to do and what was true. Since that time I have grown even stronger in my testimony of the power of prayer and that we can choose to be happy and follow Jesus Christ's example.”
“I have Crohn’s disease. I have to say I am grateful for this trial. It has taught me many things. It has helped me gain more knowledge in power of prayer, love, faith, charity, service, gratitude, empathy, character, endurance, hope, patience and the love of family.”
