#inspiration – God Hears Your Silent Prayers

Have you ever heard of a Veme? I wasn’t to familiar with it until I came across it. Many of us may be familiar with Memes, which are normally pictures with text that either inspire us or have a quirky punch line. A Veme (hence the V instead of the M), is the same thing except it’s a 30 second video that shares a quote. I found a bucket load of these Vemes and I think they are pretty inspiring and I will start mixing them in with my #inspiration posts.

Below I’ve attached a Meme and a Veme from a talk given by Henry B. Eyring earlier this April (Click Here To Read Full Address) where he addressed the topic of how God will give us what we need in the time that we need it if we simply ask Him through prayer. A scripture that can best proclaim this is found in James 1:5-6

5 If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him.

6 But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering…

In his address he quotes from Joseph F. Smith who commented on praying,

“We do not have to cry unto him with many words. We do not have to weary him with long prayers. What we do need, and what we should do […] for our own good, is to go before him often, to witness unto him that we remember him and that we are willing to take upon us his name, keep his commandments, work righteousness; and that we desire his Spirit to help us […] What do you pray for? You pray that God may recognize you, that he may hear your prayers, and that he may bless you with his Spirit.”

I know that God truly does answer prayers, and I know for a fact that He never answers the way we expect it to come. Be willing to ask God questions, pour your heart out to Him! He wants to hear from you personally, and if we “shut out the distractions” we can listen to what He is telling us.
