"We gain a testimony of any commandment of God by keeping that commandment (see John 7:17). This is true of the command that we pray always vocally and in secret. As your teacher and your friend, I promise that God will answer your prayers and that by the power of the Holy Ghost, you can know for yourself that the answers are from Him."—President Henry B. Eyring, "Exhort Them to Pray", Liahona, Feb. 2012
As I sat nursing Aleks at 4:30 this morning, the house was quiet, I was sleepy, and suddenly a thought entered my mind: "Now is a perfect time to pray."
I've been struggling for a while now with personal prayer...
Crazy kids jumping on me/sitting on me/sucking on me all day.
TV is always on.
Phone is always beeping with a text/voicemail.
Internet is always nagging me with emails/facebook messages/instagram pics/blogs to read, etc.
When and where can I find a quiet peaceful moment in a life like this?
Sometimes when I'm 1/2 asleep nursing my baby at 4:30am.
I'm thankful for that moment...because I feel closer to the Lord today because I FINALLY prayed.
