HEAVENLY FATHER ANSWERS PRAYERS IN OUR MOST PAINFUL MOMENTS

Will Heavenly Father be there during our most painful moments?

If you ask Lynne Smith, she will share her testimony with you.

”After my back surgery, I was struggling because I couldn’t take pain medicine.

I wasn’t getting restful sleep at all, suffering from insomnia. At about 3 weeks post surgery, I slipped out of bed so as to not waken my spouse.

I went into the extra room and plead with Heavenly Father to take me home.

At around 5 am, after being up all night, I was finally able to go to sleep. At 8 AM, I woke up knowing what the problem was that was keeping me awake.

I was having an adverse reaction to the muscle relaxers. I didn’t take another one after that moment and was finally able to get rest.

Heavenly Father DOES hear and answer our prayers. He DOES know our needs, but most importantly, I learned that night, He DOES know us by name.

Now, when I hear the children say in their testimony, “He knows us by name,” I say Yes, yes, He does.”

I’m grateful for Lynne and her testimony of our Heavenly Father. Like Lynne, we may come to a point in our lives where we plead,” Take me home.”

How do we pray, and what should we remember as we pray? Mormon warned us of the following, ” if anyone shall pray and not with real intent of heart … it profiteth him nothing, for God receiveth none such” (Moroni 7:9).

He then taught us how to pray, and that’s, ”With all the energy of heart” (Moroni 7:48).

May we all learn a lesson from Lynne as we face our challenges. Rise up and hear Him! @ferron_peach
