Praying In His Name

Today I was quieter in my prayer. I didn’t try to verbally justify my sins or “work it out” by talking out my problems in a problem-solving way. I stated my concerns and the personal mistakes I now recognized, expressed my need for help and closed my prayer in the name of Jesus Christ. Then I stopped talking and listened. I had a reassuring thought unrelated to my prayer. I followed it willingly but still fighting the impulse to try to figure out why I needed to do that. In a short time my course opened, and I knew why and how. I only followed.

Jesus Christ said,

“And whatsoever ye shall ask the Father in my name, which is right, believing that ye shall receive, behold it shall be given unto you.”

3 Nephi 18:20
The Book of Mormon
