Prayer is frequently discounted as not being able to be effective because of our failing to be righteous in other areas. Indeed, we can frequently feel that we are not worthy to pray, when in reality the worthiness that we seek can only be obtained through prayer coupled with action.
2 Nephi 32
Alma 33 & 34
What causes us to conclude that such would be the case?
Then how can we know when we received revelation from Heavenly Father?
Why is this one practice, namely developing a relationship with God through prayer, so essential to our salvation?
