Spiritual communication cannot be forced (Richard G. Scott)

...one cannot "call down" the Spirit as some are prone to say.  We can create an appropriate environment for the Holy Ghost to instruct us.  Spiritual communication cannot be forced.  We must qualify ourselves and be ready to receive the Lord's guidance and direction when He determines to provide it.  No matter how urgent our personal timetable, the Lord responds according to His will.

Richard G. Scott, address to religious educators, given at BYU August 11, 1998
