We all need help from the Lord in every area of our lives, and one vital key to receiving that help is prayer. In Receiving Answers to Our Prayers, Elder Cook examines some of the most important principles and practices of prayer, which the Lord has taught us through scripture and through living prophets. By illustrating those principles through examples and many true-life stories, he shows that the Lord does answer prayers and suggests ways we can become more receptive to the answers the Lord sends. Elder Cook focuses on the difficult question of why answers do not always come in ways we expect and what we can do then to increase our faith.
Although I am not a member of the Church, I am very familiar with lots of its principles due to close friends. In a trip to SLC I bought this wonderful book, which I have read several times, especially when I need guidance to strenghten my prayers. I really recommend it, it is very instructive, easy to follow and above all, it works.
I am the one who wrote the first review on this book in 2003, when I was not a member. I got baptized in September 2003 and I am very happy inside the Church. I am and live in Costa Rica, and I will always remember this book as very instrumental in my conversion process
