a few years ago there was a lesson in church on a talk by richard g scott-obtaining help from the lord.
it was honestly a life changing experience. it is one of my favorite talks of all time and applies to all of us no matter our religion. i have prayed for as long as i can remember. i have always believed in God. i have always known i could pray to God for basically any and everything. this talk completely changed my outlook on prayer. it reminds me that prayer isn't a passive thing. obtaining help from the Lord requires a lot of effort on my part. sometimes it may seem like we aren't getting the help we seek. this is a good reminder that God hears us every single time, but the answers might be different than we expect/hope.
some of the other book of mormon bloggers are talking about churchy things today too
