Watch: Sister McConkie Shares Powerful Video of How Prayer Transforms Lives


Sister Carol F. McConkie, the first counselor in the Young Women general presidency, recently shared a video on Facebook that reminds us amidst the chaos of life that prayer should remain a priority, that through its power, we will find peace and balance.

Along with the video, she posted:
I love the words of the hymn “Ere you left your room this morning, did you think to pray?” Prayer is a mighty spiritual foundation for each of us every day. It is the opportunity to commune with our Father in Heaven, in the name of Jesus Christ, to express gratitude and seek guidance by the Holy Ghost. In a world often chaotic and confusing, a humble prayer will keep us shielded, settled, and centered on the things of most importance.
The Apostle Paul taught the word of the Lord. “Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. And the peace … which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus” (Philippians 4:6–7).
I know that whenever we seek our Father in prayer, He hears and He will answer. He knows all things and is perfect in love, and He will give us the wisdom we need if we will ask in prayer.
