                                                                          Anyone Can Pray                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                         Through prayer we can draw closer to God, get answers to our questions and find comfort.Anyone can pray, anywhere and at any time. Whether we're kneeling, sitting or standing, praying out loud or silently, praying in groups or by ourselves, God will hear and answer us.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                               Prayer is so easy and so simple we might not appreciate what a privilege it is. It is a direct line of communication with our Heavenly Father who wants to help us with all of our problems and questions. Though He may not always answer right away or in a way we expect, we believe the scriptures when they say, “Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you” (Matthew 7:7).

We are commanded to pray often because the more we speak with God; the more open we will be to His guidance through the challenges we face. This is an example of how the blessings of the commandment far outweigh the effort they require.
