LDS LIFE // How Changing the Way I Pray Changed My Life

5.17.2017

An inspiring story of a young LDS girl who prayed for someone in her life to change and then ended up changing her own life when she changed her prayers.  #lds #prayer

When I was young and my parents were divorced, I used to pray that they would get back together. That was when I was very young. But my father was very abusive and as I got older and realized the full weight of his terrible acts, I did not want him to be with my Mom anymore. So when I was around seven or eight years old I remember my prayers changed and I began to pray to God that my Mother would meet some other wonderful man and they would get married.

But that didn't happen. And before I knew it, one day, I was a teenager and I realized that the dream of a father to raise me was over. I was almost raised. And my prayers changed again. One night I knelt down and asked God if He would be the father I had always wanted. The father I had longed for. The father I had prayed for.

And He was.

I spoke to Him at night as I would speak to an earthly father...telling him about my ups and downs, my locker partner and the boy I had a crush on in school. And God filled that place in my heart. And probably just because I asked Him to. I want to send out there into blog-land that I know that He loves us. And that He is just as invested in our lives and happiness as an earthly Father and, in some cases, even more. I know this is true.

Draw near unto me and I will draw near unto you; seek me diligently and ye shall find me; ask, and ye shall receive; knock, and it shall be opened unto you. --Doctrine and Covenants 88:63
