Spread the love

2 Nephi 33:3-7

3. But I, Nephi, have written what I have written, and I esteem it as of great worth, and especially unto my people. For I pray continually for them by day, and mine eyes water my pillow by night, because of them; and I cry unto my God in faith, and I know that he will hear my cry.

4. And I know that the Lord God will consecrate my prayers for the gain of my people. And the words which I have written in weakness will be made strong unto them; for it persuadeth them to do good; it maketh known unto them of their fathers; and it speaketh of Jesus, and persuadeth them to believe in him, and to endure to the end, which is life eternal.

5. And it speaketh harshly against sin, according to the plainness of the truth; wherefore, no man will be angry at the words which I have written save he shall be of the spirit of the devil.

6. I glory in plainness; I glory in truth; I glory in my Jesus, for he hath redeemed my soul from hell.

7. I have charity for my people, and great faith in Christ that I shall meet many souls spotless at his judgement-seat.

These scriptures spoke to my heart. I know that prayer is what has been comforting me through I difficult challenge right now. I know deep conversation with the Lord has blessed me and it does bless the lives of those we are praying for. I do glory in truth, my Lord, and His perfect goodness for giving me peace, love, and comfort.

“Heavenly Father does hear every child’s prayer. With infinite love, He beckons us to come believe and belong by covenant.” -Elder Gerrit W. Gong (General Conference, Octorber 2019, Covenant Belonging)

I know in the hardest of situations the light of Christ, angels, the spirit, and Heavenly Father will always be there for me to feel comfort and love. Prayer is what I need for my soul. It is a light for my soul. As I pray often during the day, my day is better and I feel better.

Prayer is so very real in my life. It’s a bright light. I glory in prayer.

My mom made a great dessert every Sunday and made them upon request growing up. I have always been really well at expressing my thoughts and feelings. I love to express a lot of my spiritual feelings with friends and family. As a young girl, I worked really hard to have a great relationship with my Father in Heaven. I have felt His presence from the time I was 8 and currently still feel his love and desire for me to become closer to Him. I desire to be a missionary as well as help others understand His love for all of His children. I find that being friendly, understanding and being compassionate to everyone is the best example of His son, Jesus Christ. I strive to follow His teachings. I also stumble with all of it. I'm so grateful for the atonement and repentance when I'm in need of change of heart and a compassionate spirit. I find life to be so beautiful and I'm grateful everyday for the experiences I have. I am a wife, mother, daughter of God, writer, runner, baker, and an imperfect being striving to be the best me.
