Prayer


Pray fervently. With God all things
are possible. He who notes the fall of the
sparrow surely hears the pleadings of our hearts. Sister Daisy Ogando lives in
New York City, home to more than 8 million people. Some years ago Sister Ogando met
with the missionaries and was taught the gospel. Gradually she and the
missionaries lost contact. Time passed. Then in 2007, the principles
of the gospel she’d been taught by the missionaries
stirred within her heart. One day while getting
into a taxi– [SPEAKING SPANISH] I was getting into a taxi when
suddenly I saw on the corner some missionaries talking
to the people. I turned around in my seat in
the taxi watching until they were out of sight. I began to pray my
heart to God. I closed my eyes and told God
in my heart that if he will send the missionaries again to
my home, I was not going to let them go again. When I got to my apartment
building and as I was walking up to the third floor, there
were two missionaries who were talking with a lady. And I smiled because I felt it
was like an answer that came almost too quickly. When they knocked on
the door, I went running to open the door. And I said to them come in. I’ve been waiting for you. Praying has helped
me to serve more. Because praying and being in
communication with God has helped me be more loving
with people. It has helped me to
be more humble. It has helped me to be
more devoted to the church and to God. Praying has helped me a
lot to always watch out for other people. I know he had a plan laid out
for me even before the missionaries came to my house
for the first time. He had a plan for me that I had
to be in the place where I am now where he wanted
me to be. He rescued me in the moment
just when I needed him. And this is my testimony
about prayer. I asked him with love
to rescue me. And he rescued me. Two fervent prayers
were answered. Missionary lessons were Taught
And arrangements were made for Daisy to be baptized. Remember to pray fervently. To those within the sound of
my voice who are struggling with challenges and
difficulties, large and small, prayer is the provider of
spiritual strength. It is the passport to peace. Prayer is the means by which
we approach our Father in Heaven who loves us. Speak to Him in prayer. And then listen for
the answer. Miracles are wrought
through prayer.

  1. I truly believe the power of prayer. Heavenly Father always answers my prayers in the right time, and I know He knows me personally.

  2. Wonderful story of answered prayers! You might like some of the prayers from a site I'm part of called Prayables. Prayers for women, but us guys like them too!

  3. All thing's work out for the good of those who love the Lord who's called according to his purpose!

  4. “There is nothing sweeter in the world of existence than prayer. Man must live in a state of prayer. The most blessed condition is the condition of prayer and supplication. Prayer is conversation with God. The greatest attainment or sweetest state is none other than conversation with God. It creates spirituality, creates mindfulness and celestial feelings, begets new attractions of the Kingdom and engenders the susceptibilities of the higher intelligence.” from Baha'i Faith

  5. Galatians 1:8

    "But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed."

    The Apostles preached about the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus.

    Repentance, baptism in His Name, and the gift of the Holy Spirit are how we apply this to ourselves.

    Repentance = death to self.

    Immersion in water in His Name = burial with Christ.

    Gift of the Holy Spirit = new life.

    Read and obey Acts 2:38 if you want to be saved.
