we should pray more regularly

You who pray sometimes, why not pray more regularly, more often, more devoutly? Is time so precious, life so short, or faith so scant? . . . Do you pray occasionally when you should be praying regularly, often, constantly? . . . Do you just speak, or do you also listen? . . . Do you give thanks or merely ask for favors? Spencer W. Kimball ,  "Prayer, New Era," Mar. 1978, 17

there is a power greater than ours

Recognize that there is a power greater than ours, that no matter how good a man is, he is not good enough, that no matter how wise he is, he is not wise enough, that no matter how strong he is, he is not strong enough for all of the things which he will face in life, and that there is a source of power to which he can go with the assurance that he will be listened to and that there will be a response. Gordon B. Hinckley ,  "The Message: Gifts to Bring Home from the Mission Field," New Era, Mar. 2007, 4

improved prayers

"A key to improved prayer is to learn to ask the right questions. Consider changing from asking for the things you want to honestly seeking what He wants for you. Then as you learn His will, pray that you will be led to have the strength to fulfill it." Richard G. Scott ,  "Using the Supernal Gift of Prayer," Ensign, May 2007, 8
