Prayer is a source of comfort, peace, and compassion

Supernal gift
Pray vocally as also in heart
Prayer is most effective when we are clean and do His will
Ask right questions. Seek not what we want, but what he wants.
Pray when we have no desire or have a big problem
Never feel unworthy to pray
Be humble, and trust in the Lord in prayer
Sincere prayer has power

Exercise faith
Answers come a piece at a time
Prayer answers will come in quiet moments
Greater faith, stronger character
Life will be easier if we accept what the lord does is best

Peace is most calming, confirming way prayers are answered
Feel peace, comfort and assurance, sense stupor of thought, feel no response
Gratitude is most important
He will answer in the way and time for my eternal good
