I am grateful for the principle of prayer. This simple doctrine can have a powerful effect in our lives. I know that we have a loving Heavenly Father, who hears and answers our sincere prayers. What a privilege it is to know that we can receive guidance and direction from our Creator. He can guide us in all of our endeavors if we live this principle that the Savior so clearly taught. As we pray to our Heavenly Father in the name of Jesus Christ, we will see His influence in our lives. He can give us peace and comfort amidst the turmoil of the world. I know that if we pray with faith, sincerity, and real intent, then we will feel closer to God.
