100 Days Closer to Jesus Christ Day - Day 84

100 Days Closer to Jesus Christ
Book of Mormon Study
  Day 84
 Scripture Study:  3 Nephi 17-18
Scripture Mark and Ponder: 3 Nephi 18:19-21
Scripture Thought of the Day: 
"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.
Whatsoever ye ask the Father in my name it shall be given unto you, that is expedient for you."
(D&C 63-64)
Thought of Day:
"The trouble with most of our prayers is that we give them as if we were picking up the telephone and ordering groceries- we place our order and hang up.  We need to meditate, contemplate, thinK of what we are praying about and for and then speak to the Lords as one man speaketh to another. "Come now, and let us reason together, saith the Lord"
(Isaiah 1:18) That is the invitaion.  BelieVe in the power of prayer - it is real, it is wonderful, it is tremendous.
(Gordon B. Hinckley)
Optional Study:  Study from the topical guide and other reference material all you can on the subject of PRAYER.
"With gospel perspective, we can know that when we endure to the very end, we are actually enduring to the very beginning. Thus, rather than viewing this virtue as delivering us expiring in exhaustion to a finish line, we are brought intact and victorious to a starting line!"
(Neal A. Maxwell)
