Elder Russell M. Nelson-LDS Apostle, during October 2005 General Conference shared this loving counsel, I recognize that, on occasion, some of our most fervent prayers may seem to go unanswered. We wonder, ‘Why?’ I know that feeling! I know the fears and tears of such moments. But I also know that our prayers are never ignored. Our faith is never unappreciated. I know that an all-wise Heavenly Father’s perspective is much broader than is ours. While we know of our mortal problems and pain, He knows of our immortal progress and potential. If we pray to know His will and submit ourselves to it with patience and courage, heavenly healing can take place in His own way and time.
Prayer has been a constant in my life and hopefully a teacher from my simple requests as a child to let me keep this lost kitten to my adult years strengthen me to get through this challenge or today help me to know how to best serve others. There is hidden strength and comfort available. From the bible we read...Peace I give unto you, my peace I give unto you, not as the world gives, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, be unafraid. My peace I give unto you. A powerful promise. John 14:27. I memorized that years ago in college.
