{revelation, prayer}

“Someone has said that we live in a day in which God, if there be a God, chooses to be silent, but the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints proclaims to the world that neither the Father nor the Son is silent. They are vocal and commune as proper and necessary, and constantly express a willingness, indeed an eagerness, to maintain communication with men.” Spencer W. Kimball

“If God spoke anciently, is it unreasonable to believe that he can speak in our time? What man would think to deny God the right to express himself?” Gordon B. Hinckley

“Do we turn away the still, small voice? Do we do things that offend the Holy Ghost? Do we allow influences into our homes that drive the Spirit from our homes? The type of entertainment that we permit into our homes will certainly have an impact on the power of the Holy Ghost.” Jospeh B. Wirthlin, Ensign, May 2003

“There are two kinds of people: Those who say to God, “Thy will be done,” and those to whom God says, “All right, then have it your way.” C.S. Lewis

“If one rises from his knees having merely said words, he should fall back on his knees and remain there until he has established communication with the Lord who is very anxious to bless, but having given man his free agency, will not force himself upon that man.” Spencer W. Kimball

“Some people regard God as an airman does his parachute: it’s there for emergencies, but he hopes he’ll never have to use it.” C.S. Lewis
