Latter-day Saint Life

Elder Christofferson Shares the 1 Thing You Should Do When You Feel Your Prayers Aren't Being Answered


Do you feel like your prayers are not being heard? Are you struggling to feel Heavenly Father's guidance after you pray?

Elder D. Todd Christofferson recently gave a suggestion of how Latter-day Saints can better realign their lives with Heavenly Father so their hearts can more easily receive the blessings and messages that coming from the heavens:

There may be times when you feel that your prayers are not going anywhere—times when you wonder if your Heavenly Father is listening.
If this happens to you, I suggest that you express gratitude for your blessings, one by one. There is something about a grateful heart that opens the heavens.
You might also ask in prayer, “What lack I yet?” Or, “Is there something I have forgotten that needs to be corrected?” This is a hard prayer to utter, but I testify that honest answers will come. If your heart is open to the Lord’s will (if you are praying with real intent), He will give you what you need to change or correct in order to grow.
