Day 5 + twins turn 16 today!

Happy Birthday to my two 16 year old angels!!As is our tradition the girls picked the menu for the day.  French toast with Bill’s ultra tastey fruit smoothies for breakfast.  Angel hair pasta with meatballs and Alfredo, egg nog, a chocolate tort , and “Mt. Visuvious” (ice cream cake).  I’m so full I can’t get my tail out of this seat to help Bill and Harrison with dishes….and I’m afraid to say I’m not putting the greatest amount of effort into it:-)

Some thoughts from Day 4 journaling: How does the way the Savior testifies of Himself strengthen my testimony?  One of the wonderful truths brought about through the restoration of the Gospel of Jesus Christ is that The Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost are 3 separate and distinct personages.  The relationship I have with my Father in Heaven feels different to me than the one I have with my Savior.  I know Jesus died for me, and atoned for my sins, he essentially bought me.  I can never repay – but I can show appreciation by trying to live as righteously as I can.  

Day 5

Prayer

James 1: 5-6, 5 If any of you lack  wisdom, let him ask of God, that  giveth to all men liberally, and  upbraideth not; and it shall be given him.

6 But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed.

Alma 34: 18-27, 18 Yea, cry unto him for mercy; for he is mighty to save.

19 Yea, humble yourselves, and continue in prayer unto him.

20 Cry unto him when ye are in your fields, yea, over all your flocks.

21 Cry unto him in your houses, yea, over all your household, both morning, mid-day, and evening.

22 Yea, cry unto him against the power of your enemies.

23 Yea, cry unto him against the devil, who is an enemy to all righteousness.

24 Cry unto him over the crops of your fields, that ye may prosper in them.

25 Cry over the flocks of your fields, that they may increase.

26 But this is not all; ye must pour out your souls in your closets, and your secret places, and in your wilderness.

27 Yea, and when you do not cry unto the Lord, let your hearts be full, drawn out in prayer unto him continually for your welfare, and also for the welfare of those who are around you.

Alma 37: 36-37, 36 Yea, and cry unto God for all thy support; yea, let all thy doings be unto the Lord, and whithersoever thou goest let it be in the Lord; yea, let all thy thoughts be directed unto the Lord; yea, let the affections of thy heart be placed upon the Lord forever.

37 Counsel with the Lord in all thy doings, and he will direct thee for good; yea, when thou liest down at night lie down unto the Lord, that he may watch over you in your sleep; and when thou risest in the morning let thy heart be full of thanks unto God; and if ye do these things, ye shall be lifted up at the last day

D&C 19: 28, 28 And again, I command thee that thou shalt pray vocally as well as in thy heart; yea, before the world as well as in secret, in public as well as in private.

The word ‘cry’ is used 9 times in these scriptures…why?

What is the difference between a silent prayer and a vocal prayer?

Why do I pray?
