Pray Always

The article of the week is "Pray Always," a talk given by Elder David A. Bednar of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles. Here is the link to the audio and video.

This conference talk comes from the most recent conference in October 2008. I believe that the majority of the readers of this blog listened to conference when this talk was given, but some of you didn't and those of you who did, I just listened to it online and remembering what Elder Bednar said was a wonderful experience.

Elder Bednar was ordained an apostle 7 October 2004.

I love this talk. Recall Alma's words to, "cry unto God for all thy support; yea, let all thy doings be unto the Lord, and whithersoever thou goest let it be in the Lord; yea, let all thy thoughts be directed unto the Lord; yea, let the affections of thy heart be placed upon the Lord forever." (Alma 37:37.)

Elder Bednar expounds upon this verse, clearly explaining the connection between morning and evening prayers, and all the prayers offered inbetween. Honestly, this talk is more for myself than for the readers of this blog, almost every line of this talk offers Godly insight into how we can better our communication with Our Heavenly Father.

The Lord hears and answers prayers.
