Russell M. Nelson
Elder Russell M. Nelson of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles shares some of his thoughts on this subject.

What should I know about prayer?

We may pray to Him any time.

Prophets have long told us to pray humbly and frequently.

Prayers can be offered even in silence. One can think a prayer.

A loving Father in Heaven wants to hear from His children. Through prayer, we can show our love for God.

We pray privately, with our families regularly, at mealtime, and in daily activities.

Jesus revealed that we pray to a wise Father who knows what things we have need of, before we ask Him.
