Product Description

How can we make our communication with our Heavenly Father more meaningful and enjoyable? What do we need to do to “pay the price” to receive answers to our prayers?

In this engaging talk by beloved speaker Mary Ellen Edmunds, listeners will learn more about the work of prayer, the language of prayer, and the feelings associated with prayer. Prayer is both a blessing and a commandment, and when we learn to trust our Heavenly Father and truly seek his will, we can have the confidence that he hears, understands, and answers us. Blending scriptures, quotes from Church leaders, and personal experiences, Sister Edmunds teaches us how to be more effective in our own prayer life.

This is a powerful talk about prayer and how to get the most out of it. I struggle with vain repetitions when I am praying especially when I am tired. This talk was very inspiring.

I have several tapes that I have listened to so many times I expect them to self-destruct at any moment. This is one of them. Sister Edmunds' humor and spiritual insight helps me to know I am not the only one who wakes up from a prayer with drool and matted hair. But, also, that I am not the only one to wonder if my prayers really are listened to and taken seriously by my Heavenly Father. Listening to her experiences inspires me to speak more from my heart when I pray or any time I want to have a conversation with the Lord. This tape is excellent for any woman or man of any age.
