Prayer

"And now, my beloved brethren, I perceive that ye ponder still in your hearts; and it grieveth me that I must speak concerning this thing. For if ye would hearken unto the Spirit which teacheth a man to pray, ye would know that ye must pray; for the evil spirit teacheth not a man to pray, but teacheth him that he must not pray.
But behold, I say unto you that ye must pray always, and not faint; that ye must not perform any thing unto the Lord save in the first place ye shall pray unto the Father in the name of Christ, that he will consecrate thy performance unto thee, that thy performance may be for the welfare of thy soul." ~ 2 Nephi 32:8-9

Last Saturday, the Elders came over for a visit and gave a lesson on prayer.  A couple of days prior to that evening, Nick asked me about prayer and if they are really answered.  This lesson couldn't have been more timely.
