This week I have been pondering over the the power of prayer and this came into my head.
We are often told in the scripture that Heavenly Father knows what we need before we ask for it, so at time people wonder, why would I need to ask, if he already knows.
It is because he wants an action of faith.
He wants you to humbly come before him and ask.
We read many times in 3 Nephi to ask and receive, so in order to get what we truly need, we must ask, with a humble heart using the name of the Lord.
That is all He asks, a small act of faith, and in return He promises many blessings.
