From My Friend, Susan's Friend, Katie, of NC - 02/13/15:
|“I recognize that, on
occasion, some of our most fervent prayers may seem to go unanswered. We
wonder, ‘Why?’ I know that feeling! I know the fears and tears of such
moments. But I also know that our prayers are never ignored. Our faith
is never unappreciated. I know that an all-wise Heavenly Father’s
perspective is much broader than is ours. While we know of our mortal
problems and pain, He knows of our immortal progress and potential. If
we pray to know His will and submit ourselves to it with patience and
courage, heavenly healing can take place in His own way and time.”
Russell M. Nelson
