This last week we had an exciting holiday for a missionary. Well actually two...Mother's Day, and National Day of Prayer!! We are working to put together a video where we interview random people on the street and ask them what prayer means to them. I have been so inspired and impressed from some of the responses we have seen. Prayer is as the young woman of the Newark Ward said "our direct phone line to Heaven." My testimony was strengthened as I heard both those of our faith and those who are not bear testimony of the power of prayer and how it has changed them. We have seen the broken-hearted, those who are battling cancer, those who are carrying the weight of their sins, those looking for a source of help and guidance, and those wanting to feel loved turn to their Father in Heaven and beckon Him in prayer. Prayer is not a last resort, it is the only option. When we call upon the powers of Heaven, hearts are touched and lives are changed.
I love you guys so very much! Go make today great and remember you are so worth it to our Father in Heaven. He is not waiting to love you until you are perfect. He loves you perfectly now. Reach out to Him. I encourage you to get on your knees and talk to Him. Now is the time and will forever be the time to talk to your Father in Heaven.Love Sister Mathis
