“To help you become all that the Lord wants you to become, kneel each morning and night in prayer to your Father in Heaven.” – For the Strength of Youth
I, ____________________, commit to pray every morning and every night for the duration of this segment.
“We are commanded to [pray]. Prayer is not something of relative insignificance which we may choose to do if the fancy strikes us. Rather, it is an eternal decree of Deity. “Thou shalt repent and call upon God in the name of the Son forevermore,” was his word in the first dispensation. “And Adam and Eve, his wife, ceased not to called upon God.” (Moses 5:8, 16.) In our day we are instructed: “Ask, and ye shall receive; knock, and it shall be opened unto you.” (D&C 4:7.) Home teachers are appointed in the Church to “visit the house of each member, and exhort them to pray vocally and in secret.” (D&C 20:47.) And speaking by way of “commandment” to his latter-day people, the Lord says: “He that observeth not his prayers before the Lord in the season thereof, let him be had in remembrance before the judge of my people.” (D&C 68:33.)” – Why the Lord Ordained Prayer by Bruce R.
