I'm a girl who believes in prayer.
I very rarely make a decision without passing it by the Big Man first,
and if i forget,
i always doubt whether i made the right choice,
if i pray i will always know.
So making a decision about who you are going to marry is HUGE!
there has been a lot of prayer time dedicated to it over the years over here at my house.
I just read a great talk on prayer
A couple of my favourite bits -
In His mercy, the God of heaven, the Creator and Ruler of all things everywhere, had heard a prayer about a very minor thing. One might well ask why He would concern Himself with something so small. I am led to believe that our Heavenly Father loves us so much that the things that are important to us become important to Him, just because He loves us. How much more would He want to help us with the big things that we ask, which are right (see 3 Nephi 18:20)?
We must not imagine that any kind of prayer, no matter how sincere, will be very effective if all we do is to say the prayer. We must not only say our prayers; we must also live them. The Lord is much more pleased with the person who prays and then goes to work than with the person who only prays. Much like medicine, prayer works only when we use it as directed.
Please do not be discouraged if this does not work for you all at once. Like learning a foreign language, it takes practice and effort. Please know, though, that you can learn the language of the Spirit, and when you do, it will give you great faith and power in righteousness.
And as excited as i am about my future,
and i know i love My Captain with all my heart,
and he's the best person that i know
there are the occasional moments when i'm still worrying,
am i getting it right?
this is it....
this is THE decision of a life time...
but at the end of the day, i know that if i pray
about it and all those worries go away,
then i'm on the right track,
