The Puissant Power of Personal Prayer

Two Sundays previous to today, our local ward (congregation) of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS Church) Sacrament (worship service) speakers spoke on a topic suggested to them by our inspired lay leadership (Bishopric).
Their topic was how to prepare for this weekend's LDS Church General Conference meetings, which were broadcast worldwide via satellite to homes, cable television networks, and LDS Meetinghouses.
In these sacrament meeting talks, we then were encouraged to prepare for the conference broadcasts by praying on behalf of the conference speakers and also that our hearts and minds would be prepared to receive and understand counsel given to us that would be especially meaningful in meeting our individual and family needs.
Although by nature an impatient and contumacious soul, I nevertheless took these speakers' guidance to heart and applied it every day during the last two weeks in my private and personal prayers.
And so it was that each and every LDS Church General Conference speaker this weekend provided me with an abundance of mentoring that was poignantly appropriate and uplifting for me, so much so that I could scarce take it all in.
