Oh how praying rests the weary

We can learn much about praying to our Father in Heaven from how children pray.  They so easily feel the spirit, and trustingly pray.  They can rely on the Lord so easily.  My 6 year old daughter the other day said to me, when I was feeling down, that I needed to "pray to Jesus to help you feel better." 

Prayer is such a powerful way to connect with our Father in Heaven, and feel his love and the Love of the Savior through the spirit.  

We are counselled to pray always (Colossians, Ephesians, 3 Nephi, D & C), and to have our hearts drawn out constantly in prayer (Alma 34:27 ).

May we do that, and remember the words of the hymn:

Ere you left your room this morning
Did you think to pray
In the name of Christ our Saviour
Did you sue for loving favour
As a shield today?

Oh how praying rests the weary
Prayer will change the night to day
So when life seems dark and dreary
Don't forget to pray.

Pour your heart out to your Father in Heaven.  Rely on the atonement of the Savior in all things, and you will be able to have the spirit to be with you to calm, strengthen, comfort, and help you in all ways.
