“And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. ” —John 14:13-14
“Prayer is the way and means, given us by our Creator, whereby we can counsel and communicate with him. It is one of the chief cornerstones of pure and perfect worship. Prayer changes our lives. Through it we draw near to the Lord, and he reaches out his finger and touches us, so we never again are the same.” —Bruce R. McConkie
