"I've never realized so direct an answer..."
I had my first Sacrament meeting at the church by the temple here, and it was great to see the unity in the members, despite the small membership. I was reading a lot yesterday in english, staying to myself since I couldn't get the mass of the mandarin, and I was struggling with a sore throat for the past few days. I'd had enough of it, and I sat in secret prayer, thanking my God for the help and strength he'd given me the past few days, for letting me try my faith, and I simply thanked him for helping me out with my own worries. I then asked simply God to stop my throat from hurting. I've never really asked anything so simple or specific, and I felt silly for doing it, not really knowing if he would do it, but I knew my faith in Him was stronger. I ended in Jesus Christ's name, and immediately, I felt relief, a difference, and the feeling of the spirit that came with it.
"real power in simple prayer"
I've never realized so direct an answer to a prayer, and even though it was menial and very small, I think God really wanted me to know I had him with me. I thank my God, and I know His power is real. I pray that this story can comfort some of you, and I'll be praying with a greater faith that you will all be well, and recognize that there is real power in simple prayer and faith. We have great trials for great people, so recognize you have chosen to deal with these problems, that we might test our faith and praise in our blessings. God will not give you that which is above that you are able. Alma 13:28
Love you all, so much, send me how you're doing; I'd love to hear; and I hope you all are good.!!!
