“Have you prayed about it?” It’s a question that is often asked, but few may understand what it means to find answers to prayer. What kind of effort is needed to receive answers to prayer? How will we know when we have an answer to a prayer?
In this episode of RiseUp, Blake Dalton, a seminary teacher in Utah shares his insights from both the scriptures and from stories that illustrate principles that will help people find answers to prayers.
When it comes to difficult or critical questions about ANYTHING that comes up in life, wether it be a difficult question, or wether it be some other life choice, there is a good bit or work, of discipline that is needed if we are going to find the answer the Lord wants us to have. An all knowing God will not be without an answer to any question, but an all loving God will also help us to earn that answer so that the answer has the most value in our lives. Much like the Brother of Jared in the book of Ether in the Book of Mormon, our prayers should involve a lot of work, but it will also result in some marvelous experiences that will help us to know more fully who God is, and that he loves us.
